Her research adopts a New Historicist perspective and focuses on understanding England’s traumatized political identities in the 17th century after 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's publics came into crises of witnessing that stemmed from the execution of the country's king.
