Other Library Experience


As a scholar of early modern English literature, I have conducted research in numerous libraries and archives, including the British Library, the Newberry Library, the Folger Shakespeare Library, and the Huntington Library.

From 2014 to 2017, I served on the Library Committee at Walla Walla University, and from 2016 to 2017, I acted as the committee's faculty chair.
