I’m an Associate Professor in the Department of English at Memorial University, as well as Academic Editor at Memorial University Press.

I work primarily in the energy and environmental humanities, with a particular focus on how we imagine the world of offshore oil. My interests also lie in cultural figurations of islands and oceans, and the legacies of settler colonialism (especially in Newfoundland and Tasmania).
