I am Visiting Assistant Professor of English at the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign. I received my doctorate in English Literature from the University of Chicago. My scholarship focuses on Anglophone postcolonial and global South literature, environmental justice, and the environmental humanities. I have broader research interests in aesthetics and politics, cultural studies, new materialism, and the Anthropocene. My research has been published in Interventions and is forthcoming in Modern Fiction Studies.
At the University of Illinois I have taught a wide variety of classes for majors and non-English majors, including courses on fiction, climate change, postcolonial literature and theory, critical theory, and advanced composition.
