Summary: I am finishing up my Ph.D. in the Department of English at Yale.
Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic
After growing up in San Francisco, California, I moved not very far away to go to UC Berkeley, where I studied Comparative Literature and French. At Berkeley, I developed a particular interest in early medieval literature, and I am delighted to continue this course of study at Cambridge. My research looks at the use and literary potential of the catalogue form in Old English, Old Norse, and medieval Celtic poetry. I also have an ongoing interest in French language, literature, and landscape: I spent my junior year abroad studying and Alp-gazing in Grenoble, and I just got back from another year in France -- this time teaching English in Cherbourg.
