My PhD project focuses on translating the work of Argentine writer Haroldo Conti, who was assassinated by the military dictatorship durinig the Proceso de Reorganización Nacional in Argentina, along with analyzing textual responses to totalitarianism and censorship. 

I teach primarily BA creative writing workshops that are connected to some overarching literary theme that can be explored via craft considerations. These workshops are generative, and along with analyzing craft and reading literary and critical texts, students create, workshop, and edit their own work.
