My research includes narrative and intersections of orature and literature as well as science and literature. My most recent project examines functions of questions in narrative works as they transition from orature (oral genres in oral societies) to literature (after the invention of the printing press), including South Slavic and Homeric epic songs, New Testament epistles, and early-modern comic novel.

After teaching literature and language classes in the past, most recently I have served as the instructor of record in the Interdisciplinary Writing Program (WAC/WID). Linking to lecture courses in other disciplines, such as cinema studies, philosophy of science, environmental studies, bioethics, political science, and geography, I addressed both discipline-specific and transferrable writing skills, teaching expository writing as a tool of learning and critical thinking. I currently also serve as instructional consultant at the Center for Teaching and Learning.
