Current Research Projects 

My research interests include eighteenth- and nineteenth-century British literature, especially the novel. Victorian periodical publication, sensation and detective fiction are additional areas of interest. Most recently, I have been focused on the relationship between British and American writers of sensation novels and detective fiction, especially Mary Elizabeth Braddon and Anna Katherine Green.
