  1. MA, University of Warwick, 2013
  2. BA, University College London, 2012


I received my BA in French and Italian from University College London and my MA in English Literature from the University of Warwick. I came to the Penn State Comparative Literature Department as a PhD student in 2014. I am interested in materialist questions related to the study of "World Literature" with a special focus on the literature of Sub-Saharan Africa.
