She is studying the relationship of the poet Algernon Charles Swinburne and the painter-poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti from their first meeting in 1857 through 1868, when Swinburne commented on his friend’s art in “Notes on Some Pictures of 1868.” A Ph.D. candidate at St. John’s College, University of Cambridge, UK, she is writing a dissertation on “Swinburne’s Style."
