I earned Ph.D. in Scandinavian Studies and Folklore from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2016. I focused on folksong, specifically Swedish ballad traditions and labor songs. I taught Swedish language and folklore courses at Augustana College in Rock Island, IL for the 2016-2017 academic year. My training is in ethnographic field research, archival research, and cultural traditions.
