Biography

I am currently in my second year of the Romance Languages and Literatures Ph.D. (French emphasis, with Spanish and Portuguese). My primary research interests are in carceral studies — specifically lingual variation in the prison institution and how language, literature, and performance become emancipatory tools in this environment. I’m also interested in imaginations of urban space across the Romance-speaking world and the use of digital tools to map urban geographies.

I received a BA in Romance Languages and Literatures from the University of Michigan in 2018, having studied as well at the Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne and the Universidad Complutense de Madrid.

Aside from languages, some of my other passions include cooking, politics, and musical theater!
