I am a PhD candidate in the Department of English at Harvard University, where I received an AM degree in 2020. During my time at Harvard, I have received fellowships from the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, the Harvard Mellon Urban Initiative, the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs,

the Open Gate Foundation, and the English Department.

My dissertation, "The Future as Warning," focuses on narrative voice and literary form in 20th- and 21st-century Anglophone dystopian novels. My wider research interests include narratology, history

and theory of the novel, feminist studies, queer studies, and speculative fiction.

I also work as a researcher for iHeartMedia's podcast division, contributing to shows

such as Under the Influence (where I make a cameo in Episode 7),

among other historical and cultural podcasts.

Before coming to Harvard, I received my BA from Stanford University, graduating with honors in English and a minor in Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. I completed an MFA in Creative Writing (Poetry) at the University of Virginia, where I held a Poe-Faulkner Fellowship.


I spent two years as a staff researcher for the magazine mental_floss. and have published cultural and historical articles in venues including mental_flossJSTOR DailyAtlas Obscura, and Racked. 

My poetry has appeared in BOAAT, ApogeeSouthern Indiana ReviewPANK

Hawaii Pacific Review, DIAGRAM, and other journals.
