I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures with a Secondary Field in Comparative Literature at Harvard University. I am a Graduate Student Affiliate of the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs at Harvard University and a pensionnaire étranger at the École normale supérieure (rue d'Ulm) in Paris. I am also a production assistant at France Inter, working on Laure Adler's daily radio show "L'Heure bleue".
My research interests lie at the intersection of literature and theory, with a special focus on authors who consider the text as a material and spatial intervention. 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 an article-length manuscript about geometry in Monique Wittig's oeuvre. My article on William Golding's 1954 classic Lord of the Flies will appear in the peer-reviewed journal Épistémocritique. These two projects explore the space of what I call "flight without escapism"—a strategy that considers fugitivity not as the foundation of a utopian elsewhere, but as an immanent, affimative and radical way to transform reality.
In addition to my academic work, I like to translate original texts from English into French. I presented and translated a piece of film criticisim called "Lacunary Films" by Monique Wittig for the 09/28/2022 issue of French newspaper Libération. A piece by contemporary artist Sin Wai Kin I translated and prefaced was published in the May 2021 issue of the French literary magazine Nouvelle Revue Française (Gallimard).
I have experience teaching French language and culture at Vassar College (New York) and have taught gender studies at Sciences Po Saint-Germain-en-Laye (France).
