I completed my Ph.D. in Comparative Literature at the Pennsylvania State University in 2006, and before joining Stockton’s faculty, I was Visiting Assistant Professor at Temple University in Philadelphia. I have teaching interests in comparative European and Mediterranean literatures of the medieval period (roughly 900-1400), and my research interests are in medieval chronicle writing, the romances of King Arthur and Alexander the Great, and in Mediterranean cultural and literary exchange. In 2010, I participated in a National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Institute on the Medieval Mediterranean, and have researched in archives such as the British Library in London, the Archives of the Crown of Aragon in Spain, and the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, DC. I was a Visiting Scholar in the English Department at the University of Pennsylvania in 2009-2010, and I am currently on the Executive Council of the Delaware Valley Medieval Association for the 2012-2014 academic years.
