I am a Folger-Mellon Long-term fellow at the Folger Shakespeare Library.
In 2017, I completed my PhD in English and Book History & Print Culture at the University of Toronto.
I work on English Renaissance drama, Shakespeare, the early modern theatre and the early modern book trade.
I am completing a book manuscript entitled "A Play without a Stage: English Renaissance Drama, 1642-1660" which considers the production and reception of English Renaissance drama during the English theatre ban of 1642 to 1660.
The book is an extension of my dissertation, which received an Honorable Mention for the J. Leeds Barroll Dissertation Prize in 2018 by the Shakespeare Association of America. This project also received support from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) (2013-2015), le Fonds de recherche société et culture du Quebec (2013-2016), the Ontario Graduate Scholarship Program (2016-2017), the Folger Shakespeare Library (grant-in-aid, 2014-2015), and the Huntington Library (Francis Bacon Foundation Short-term fellowship, 2015-2016).
Other projects include a digital edition of dramatic paratexts in early English plays printed to 1700, and articles on women's labour in and around the early modern book trade, and on rag paper and recycling in the renaissance.
