I received my PhD in English and Comparative Literary Studies from the University of Warwick. My postdoctoral research explores the representation of forensic science in twentieth-century fiction and scrutinizes its global cultural popularity. I am interested in the way the field has broadened its sphere of influence to intervene in international legal, political, and cultural affairs. Additionally, I am committed to the transformative potential of e-learning and have established virtual learning communities for gifted and talented learners, in the past with the National Academy for Gifted and Talented Youth and, at present, for the YG&T Academy. I have written papers on the value of e-learning and am continuing to pursue ways to capitalize on the power of the internet to network students across time and space and provide beyond classroom enrichment.
