English doctoral student in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences

I graduated from UFV with a BA in Honours English and from SFU with an MA in English. My doctoral studies at SFU center around anything and everything having to do with postsecularism.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO COME TO SFU?

I was really hoping I could stay local for my graduate studies. SFU offered a wonderful package that made that possible.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR RESEARCH OR YOUR PROGRAM TO A FAMILY MEMBER?

I am interested in applying a postsecular literary framework - a framework that allows for the study of religion and literature- to nineteenth-century American and British fiction.

WHAT ARE YOU PARTICULARLY ENJOYING ABOUT YOUR STUDIES/RESEARCH AT SFU?

I really enjoy the people I get to work with, and the flexibility I have to take deep dives into topics I'm passionate about.

HAVE YOU BEEN THE RECIPIENT OF ANY MAJOR OR DONOR-FUNDED AWARDS? IF SO, PLEASE TELL US WHICH ONES AND A LITTLE ABOUT HOW THE AWARDS HAVE IMPACTED YOUR STUDIES AND/OR RESEARCH.

I am the recipient of two SSHRC scholarships, one at the master's level and one at the doctoral level.
