Professional Statement

I am currently interested in how twentieth century American literature--in particular, the literature of Northern California and the Pacific Northwest--reimagines and experiments with modernist modes of expression. More generally, I tend to focus on the ways in which literature tests out a variety of philosophical problems and scenarios.

I also like movies.
