I am an Associate Lecturer as well as the Bibliographer at Memorial Library for Scandinavian Humanities, Classics, Jewish and South Asian Studies. I earned a BA in German and a certificate in Scandinavian Studies from Arizona State University. I then went on to earn an MA in Scandinavian Philology and an MA in Library and Information Studies 2007. I received my PhD in Scandinavian Philology in 2015. My dissertation was a linguistic and cultural examination of disability as portrayed in the Sagas and Þættir of Icelanders. My academic interests are in linguistics, etymology, lexicography, linguistic patterns, disability studies, readers and readership, history of the book, and studying receptions of the under-represented in the world. I teach one course per semester.
