I'm interested in the ways Victorians governed themselves and others. My work investigates Victorian novels' relationships with the state, political culture, and liberalism. More broadly, my interests include Victorian literature and culture, novel studies, and the history of political liberalism. Currently, I'm working on a project about the Palliser series. I also serve as the editorial assistant for the journal NOVEL: A Forum on Fiction.
