About Me

I am a curator, educator, and scholar based in Atlanta, Georgia. I am currently Visiting Assistant Curator of the Raymond Danowski Poetry Library and of Literary Special Collections at the Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives, & Rare Book Library and a Visiting Assistant Professor of English at Emory University. My teaching and research focuses on twentieth-century American poetry, with an emphasis on the postwar and contemporary periods. As a curator, my current project is a major exhibition at Emory’s Schatten Gallery titled The Dream Machine: The Beat Generation & the Counterculture, 1940–1975, which I co-curated with Sarah Harsh and Kevin Young. The exhibition will be up until May 2018.

I have been the recipient of a Joseph-Armand Bombardier CGS Master’s Scholarship from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, an Arts and Sciences Fellowship from Emory University, and an Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Sawyer Seminar Dissertation Completion Fellowship. My articles and reviews have appeared in publications such as the Scribner American Writers Series, the Operating System, and the Los Angeles Review of Books.
