Emile Zola, naturalism, realism, 19th century France, 19th century Russia, aesthetics
I am a first-year PhD student in the Department of French. My research revolves around Emile Zola, naturalism, 19th century France & critical theory. I have strong secondary interests in 19th century Russia and the Italian Renaissance.
I earned a BA in French Literature in 2017 at the University of Texas - El Paso. In the past, I have also studied at Middlebury College and the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign.
