What I Study: My primary research centers on analyzing the context and parallels between authors of various time periods. I’m interested in the ways literature shapes culture and how culture influences the written hard.
Why I do research: Curiosity and a love of learning are core ideas behind research and I am exceptionally curious and eager to learn. My research is mostly done as a part of required coursework for my degree but I enjoy doing it because I it is the tangible application of my education. For me, research is not a chore but a process that allows me the opportunity to formulate my own ideas and study subjects that truly interest me.
