Iā€™m a third-year Ph.D. student in the English department here at Princeton, but I grew up in the Midwest (Ohio), went to college in Virginia, and then spent two years in Oxford as part of the Rhodes Scholarship program. My research focuses on early modern English literature (especially Milton); Black classicism and the reception of Greco-Roman antiquity in the Renaissance and beyond; the epic tradition; and disability studies. I also try to write about representations of nonnormative embodiment in popular culture, disability-related political issues, and my own experiences of living with a spinal-cord injury in public-facing venues as often as possible.
