PPEH Mellon Dissertation Completion Fellow
Research and teaching interests:
I write and teach at the hinge of the environmental humanities and postcolonial studies, focusing on contemporary environmental literature from the U.S. and global South. My interests include: global South studies; Indigenous studies and decolonial thought; climate fiction; disability studies; extraction and the energy humanities; extinction; oceanic studies; MELUS; history and theory of the novel. My current research examines literary representations of climate change in contemporary environmental fiction from the global and regional South and develops a decolonial approach to disaster studies.
