Her research adopts a literary-historical perspective and focuses on understanding England’s traumatized national identity in the 17th century as it resulted from the execution of Charles Stuart (Charles I) in 1648/9.  Her dissertation project is an analysis of the theatrical power of textual and speech performances that surrounded the regicide, and considers how England came into a crisis of witnessing that stemmed from the execution of its king.
