Hello! I’m a PhD candidate in English at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York (CUNY), where I concentrate in Composition-Rhetoric and American Studies. My pronouns are she/her/hers.
I am currently a Dissertation Fellow at the Gittell Urban Studies Collective, a consultant at Baruch College’s Writing Center, and a research fellow with CUNY’s New Media Lab. I’ve also taught composition at John Jay College of Criminal Justice and served as a Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) Fellow at the City College of New York.
Broadly speaking, my research draws on queer-feminist, decolonial, and abolitionist frameworks to interrogate the politics and movement of literacy across educational institutions and urban geographies. Other interests include multimodal pedagogies and rhetorics, archival methodologies, “Critical University Studies,” and science and technology studies.
Prior to starting my PhD, I earned a BA in English and Biology from Oberlin College and worked in secondary education in the San Francisco Bay Area, where I grew up.
