About Me

I teach English at the University of Tampa, and my research interests include literature and science, environmental humanities, and animal studies. My first book, Animal Subjects: Literature, Zoology, and British Modernism, is available from Cambridge University Press. I am currently working on a second book project, “On Vermin: Six Virtues for the Anthropocene.” This project looks at worms, pigeons, rats, cockroaches, mosquitoes, vultures, and how to live in an age of ecological collapse.
