I grew up in Albuquerque and Houston, and attended college at UT-Austin before heading east to continue my studies at Rutgers and Penn. My research examines the intersection of intellectual history, scientific literature, and the digital humanities, with emphasis on nineteenth-century British literature and science. At the center of my research is the question of how literary form shapes our experience of time and natural systems. I have essays in Studies in English Literature and English Literary History, and I am currently working on a mongraph that examines how the analogical imagination of historical novels and natural theology established a vocabulary commensurate to modern comparative sciences.
