I am a Ph.D. student in English at Cornell University and winner of the 2015 Patricia Bibby First Book Award for Habitat of Stones, forthcoming from Tebot Bach (2016).
My dissertation, “Flat Narratology: Surface, Depth, and Speculation in Contemporary Metafiction,” argues for the narrative significance of such objects as phrases, frames, and events on a par with character, setting, and plot. My research responds to recent work in the social sciences and philosophy on the agency of nonhuman objects.
Research and teaching interests include:
- Narrative Studies
- Creative and Expository Writing
- Science Studies
- Speculative Realism
- Speculative Fiction
My poems have appeared in Hayden’s Ferry Review, Gertrude, Narrative Magazine, Third Wednesday, and Nasty Magazine. You also find them online at:
