Ph.D Student
Prior to coming to Yale, Strtak obtained an Honours Bachelor of Arts from Trinity College, University of Toronto, and a Master of Philosophy from Lucy Cavendish College, University of Cambridge. At Yale, Strtak is very involved in student life activities. In 2018 she co-founded the Early Modern Graduate Lunch, and has served as the Head Graduate Affiliate of Trumbull College since 2019. In 2021 she was the co-recipient of the Poorvu Center for Teaching and Learning’s Teaching Innovation Project (TIP) grant for her contribution in the creation of a Certificate Program in Early Modern Studies for Yale College, which promotes the practical application of humanistic study to everyday life.
When she is not in her office happily buried under piles of books, she can be found riding in Durham, CT, cooking at home, or spending time at her family’s home in the south of Italy. She is happy to answer questions from prospective students. They should feel free to email her with any questions.
