I am a lecturer and presidential fellow in American Studies at the University of Manchester, where I specialize in the study of nineteenth-century print culture and the history of science. My scholarship has appeared in academic journals such as PMLA, American Quarterly, J19, and ESQ. I have also written for popular venues, such as the Washington Post and the Chronicle of Higher Education.
My first book, Star Territory: Printing the Universe in Nineteenth-Century America, was published by the University of Pennsylvania Press.
