Areas of Interest

  • Modernisms
  • 20th-Century and Contemporary Fiction
  • World Literatures in English
  • Aspects of Theory


I completed my BA (Honours) at Simon Fraser University. 

I'm primarily interested in the extent to which modernism is practiced in contemporary fiction (or simply narrative writing) by authors like W. G. Sebald, László Krasznahorkai, Kazuo Ishiguro, Helen DeWitt, Rachel Cusk, and Tom McCarthy, among others; I also want to consider the implications of these current or neo-modernisms for literary and critical theory.
