I came to Caltech because of the wonderful opportunity to be part of the Caltech-Huntington Humanities Collaborations. Between these two institutions, I have access to the very best resources to develop as a scholar and teacher in early modern literature and history."

Caltech is a unique place. Characterized by its focus on theoretical reasoning and rigorous methods. And located at the heart of the lovely and multicultural San Gabriel Valley. It’s a tough combination to beat."

Caltech not only nourishes curiosity, creativity, and critical thinking among students and faculty but also a community of solidarity and humility."
