I received a Chateaubriand Fellowship for fall 2016 to conduct on-site research in Angoulême, Lyon, and Nantes. These three cities served as case studies for my dissertation, entitled Oikos: Sustainability, Dwelling, and Culture in Urban France. In my first book, I will expand my dissertation analysis to two pairs of twin cities: Roubaix-Tourcoing and Cergy-Pontoise. I published part of my research findings in a 2018 article that appeared in Contemporary French Civilization. I have also presented my research at conferences held in the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico.
I have extensive experience teaching both online and in residence, and have also maintained an active interest in the digital humanities, especially as they inform fresh approaches to classroom instruction.
