Research

I'm a doctoral candidate in English Literature since fall 2018. My main research interest is British literature of the Romantic period, particularly as it relates to the philosophical and scientific debates of the time. At present, I am investigating analyses and descriptions of perceptual processes in the works of William Blake, Samuel Taylor Coleridge and William Wordsworth, and the ways in which their treatment of the topic participates in a wider Romantic debate about the metaphysics of perception.
