- About Me
I am a literature scholar with expertise in British Romanticism and the Gothic. I am a monster expert with extensive experience as a public educator, including my work with PBS as the creator, writer, and host of “Monstrum.” My research explores intersections of women, sexuality, material culture, horror, and the monstrous.
