I am an Austin-based writer and researcher. My book-in-progress examines the cultural afterlife of Ada Lovelace, the pioneering Victorian programmer and daughter of literary bad boy Lord Byron. I also teach classes on writing and U.S. history at St. Edward’s University.

My career-long goal is to create accessible, public conversations at the intersection of the arts and sciences. I’ve taught classes on “Literature and Biology” to college undergraduates and blogged about crocheted coral reefs and science raps. I believe that, in order to thrive as individuals, as a species, and as a planet, we need more opportunities to bridge disciplines, to develop humanistic coders and citizen scientists.
