My current research interests revolve mainly around the Victorian period. Specifically, I am fascinated by the works of various Victorian novelists, including Charlotte Brontë, George Eliot, and Thomas Hardy. I am also interested in philosophy of religion. As a result, conceptions of the divine, as expressed in Victorian novels, are of great importance to me. Some of the novels that are pertinent to my research are Brontë's Jane Eyre, Eliot's Middlemarch, and MacDonald's Alec Forbes of Howglen. Additionally, I enjoy studying existentialism and Russian literature, particularly the works of Dostoevsky. I am also fluent in Romanian and would like to become more acquainted with Romanian literature.
