About Me

I research, teach, and write on the rhetoric and representation of citizenship. I’ve taught at York University and Ryerson Universty and am currently a PhD Candidate and SSHRC Doctoral Fellow in the Department of English at York. I’m curious about the way we talk about citizenship, how literature contributes to the vocabulary of (non)belonging, and what might need to change in how we express political, legal, and cultural affiliation.

I also write fiction. My short stories can be found in various publications, including SAND, Broken Pencil, and The Feathertale Review. My debut novel Vandal Confession was published in 2015 and translated into French in 2017.
