Presently a Visiting Assistant Professor at the United States Military Academy in West Point, New York, I previously taught at Boston College after earning my Ph.D. in May 2015.

My research focuses on twenty-first century American immigration narratives and I read literature and nonfiction alongside domestic policy relating to 9/11. My current book project, “Who Am I With? Disaffiliation in Contemporary Immigration Narratives,” recently won the 2017 NeMLA Book Prize for outstanding unpublished manuscript.
