After graduating from Arizona State University with a double major in English literature and Italian language, I relocated to Italy for a year to study Latin, Greek, and Italian at the University of Padua. The following year, I completed a Master's degree in Medieval Studies at the University of Toronto where I am currently a doctoral candidate at the Centre for Medieval Studies. My Ph.D. dissertation is about the political history of fourteenth-century Florence, Italy.

At the University of Toronto, I am a teaching assistant for a number literature and history courses. Many of my students are in their first or second year of university, and I especially enjoy working with them as they make the transition from high school to university, learning on the one hand what it means to write university level research papers, and on the other, how to approach books and ideas that complicate what they know about history, literature, and life.

In my spare time, I play the concert harp and enjoy listening to music, swimming, baking, and reading twentieth-century literature.
