• I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures with a Secondary Field in Comparative Literature at Harvard University.
  • My research interests lie at the intersection of literature and theory, with a special focus on authors who consider the text as a material intervention, a work to be activated (Monique Wittig, Gilles Deleuze, etc.). I also study literature through the lenses of queer thought, ecocriticism, and the politics of aesthetics. My other interests include the emerging field of fat studies, which I seek to apprehend from the perspective of literary studies.
  • I am currently working on two article-length manuscripts about geopoetics in Monique Wittig's oeuvre and in William Golding's 1954 classic Lord of the Flies. Another article project deals with the poetics of fat in Ananda Devi's 2018 novel Manger l'autre. With Pierre-Louis Patoine (Paris 3–Sorbonne Nouvelle) and Sarah Bouttier (École Polytechnique), I am also co-editing an issue of the peer-reviewed journal Épistémocritique that will gather the proceedings of the "Crises: Climate and Critique in the Literature and Arts of the English-Speaking World after 1800" international conference that took place at Paris 3–Sorbonne Nouvelle in November 2021.
  • Prior to coming to Harvard, I held a 2-year fellowship position in the Department of French and Francophone Studies at Vassar College (Poughkeepsie, New York). I earned my master’s degree in English literature from the Sorbonne (Paris, France), where I worked under the mentorship of Frédéric Regard. Part of the research I did then is to appear as an essay entitled “Queering the Orange: Burgess, Warhol, Bowie,” in the forthcoming volume A Clockwork Orange and Beyond (Manchester University Press, 2022).
  • In addition to my academic work, I like to translate original texts from English into French. A piece I translated and introduced was published in the May 2021 issue of the Nouvelle Revue Française (NRF—Gallimard), one of France's most prestigious literary magazines.
