I am a second year M.A. student at the department of Comparative Literature, and my research interests lie in modern East Asian literatures in the context of world literature. Currently I am focusing on 20th-century decadent and avant-garde literature and arts in China and Japan that feature representations of feelings and affects with questions concerning historicity, subjectivity, and political agency.

Areas of Specialization:

Modern Chinese literature

Modern Japanese literature

Global modernisms

Affect theory and psychoanalysis
