Professional Bio

I am a second-year MA student in English. My research is focused broadly on American literature and pop culture, considered through the lenses of narrative/genre theory and aesthetics. I also work in Marxism and critical university studies.

I'm also a fiction writer. My work has appeared most recently in One Story and The Apple Valley Review.
