My research interests are far-ranging and interdisciplinary, with a growing interest in intersection points between early modern literature, art, philosophy, and science. Interests include botany, cartography, violence, discovery, controversial scientific discoveries, theories of matter and space, and utopias and dystopias. In addition, I am particularly interested in the book as a material object and a history of books, readers, and reading.
