My current research interest is contemporary Scottish women poets, including the works of Carol Ann Duffy, Valerie Gillies, Kathleen Jamie, Jackie Kay, Liz Lochhead and others. My most recent publications have focused on multimedia collaborations between poets and visual artists, particularly around the topics of health or the environment.
I have received a series of NSF grants based on diversity issues. Currently, I am a co-PI on an NSF ADVANCE grant designed to better recruit and retain women faculty and faculty of color.
