Kaitlin received her bachelor's degree in German from Wayne State University in 2012 and her master's degree in German Language, Literature, and Culture from McGill University in 2015.

Kaitlin's research interests include fairy tale adaptation, digital humanities (specifically text mining and sentiment analysis, with an increasing interest in digital literary mapping techniques), the long 19th century, female authorship, feminist theory, and biography/historiography. She is currently writing a dissertation with the working title "(In)Visible Women: Historical Biographical Sketches if the Wives of the Young German Literary Movement in the Long Nineteenth Century" which describes the lives of Iduna Laube, Luise Mühlbach, and Henriette Kühne-Harkort.
