CURRENT RESEARCH

My current book project, Beautiful Mechanism, examines Victorians' fearful romance with the microscope. In other work, I am also exploring how nineteenth-century British novels and medical texts begin to use and resist using visual quantitative narratives, specifically tables, charts, and statistics.
