Tietoja minustaI am a scholar and a performance maker who lives and teaches in Portland, Oregon. In 2017 I completed my Ph.D. in English at Princeton University, and since then I have taught in the Hallie Ford School of Graduate Studies at Pacific Northwest College of Art, which is now part of Willamette University.

I am a specialist in postcolonial literature, with particular emphasis on African literatures (Anglophone, Francophone, and Swahilophone). My other research and teaching interests include environmental philosophy, decolonial theory, world literature, translation studies, and the history of the novel. My first book, Unsettling Nature: Ecology, Phenomenology, and the Settler Colonial Imagination, is forthcoming with the University of Virginia Press.

In Portland, I also work as a contemporary dance artist. I've performed in numerous companies, such as the site-specific group POV Dance and Eliza Larson's FaultLine Dance, and I've also presented original work, such as 2010's Tinnitus and 2017's Abominable. New work, tentatively titled Extinction Mass, is still in the early stages of conception.

Finally, I've started a new blog, The Exploded View, which features long-form essays with an emphasis on world literature in translation. Please check it out!
