My undergraduate thesis (completed under Dr. MacLaren at McGill University) focused on postcolonialism in 20th and 21st century Canadian science-fiction. I am currently aiming to pursue postcolonial, queer, and feminist analyses of 20th and 21st century literature and media during my MA. I have several papers, including one on the poetry of Arielle Twist and one on Tanure Ojaide's Stars of the Long Night, which I am aiming to publish during my first year.

List of Publications

I have no current academic publications. However, from 2018 to the present I have worked as a lead editor and contributor at ImaginAtlas (, an independent student-run publication which publishes articles focused on speculative fiction and media.
