Teaching

In my teaching and mentoring, I inspire students to consider how technological innovation has impacted cultures of reading and writing, exploring questions at the intersection of science, technology, and literature.

I have taught upper-level undergraduate courses on science fiction and modernist literature and classical reception in contemporary English fiction, in addition to teaching first-year composition. I have also assisted in teaching large-scale text data mining at the graduate level. I welcome future opportunities to teach undergraduate and graduate-level courses in literary criticism and theory, digital humanities, science fiction, and textual materialism and book history.
