I joined the Comparative Literature section at Utrecht University in 2021.

My research is interdisciplinary, international and multilingual and focuses on literature and social, political and economic history in the long nineteenth century. I am particularly interested in gender, marginalised identities and social activism and my published work has examined activist campaigns on issues including harassment, access to birth control and labour exploitation in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

My work is also strongly influenced by my interest in archives, Digital Humanities, and public engagement.
