I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of English, jointly enrolled in the Sexual Diversity Studies and the Diaspora and Transnational Studies collaborative programs, at the University of Toronto. I am a recipient of the Joseph-Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholarship Doctoral Award from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada and completing a dissertation on "Unthinkable Subjects."
Broadly speaking, my research and teaching are at the intersection of literature and theory; specifically, race, psychoanalysis, and experimental writing and poetics (modern and contemporary). My research methods are comparative, transnational, and interdisciplinary; and in my teaching I am committed to demonstrating to my students that criticism and interpretation can be rigorously creative endeavours. I am also interested in theories of writing and pedagogy.
