I am a third-year PhD student in Harvard's English department.
I study primarily contemporary literature, media, and art in the Americas. I aspire to a career of scholarly work in modernist studies and narrative and novel theories, with keen interests that include, but are not limited to, the post-war development of area studies, scientific theories of time, and the arts of the present. My first article, on Chris Ware's "diagrammatic epistemology," was published in ASAP/Journal, and my reviews have appeared in The Brooklyn Rail and Critical Inquiry. Manuscripts on William Kentridge, Walter Benjamin, Yolanda López, and Wifredo Lam are currently in preparation or under review.
I received my AB from Kenyon College (English, 2016) and my MA from NYU (English, 2019), where I co-founded the CALAMEGS Reading Group and co-organized the inaugural symposium. I have also received additional training from the Futures of American Studies Institute at Dartmouth College (2018), the Summer Course in Narrative Studies at Aarhus University (2017), and the Uses of Narrative Winter School at the University of Groningen (2016).
