I am a senior lecturer in language and literature at Chalmers University of Technology (Chalmers tekniska högskola) in Göteborg, Sweden. My research ranges from pedagogical writing on the ways that fiction is beneficial in the teaching of science and technology to literary analysis of young adult literature. Previously a tenured associate professor of literature in the United States, I now teach at a technical university in an effort to foster inter- and transdisciplinary connections between the humanities and the sciences.

I was born in the United States and previously have lived in South Carolina, California, Texas, Kansas, and Connecticut. To learn a bit about my travels, take a look here. You can see my fellow traveler Watson (and his ever-present frisbee) in the picture on this page. Not pictured is my husband Ed, whose skills with avoiding being photographed -- and with making puns -- are unparalleled.
