I am a PhD candidate in the English Department at Duke University and a 2015-2016 ACLS/Mellon Dissertation Completion Fellow. I research and teach in the fields of twentieth and twenty-first century American literature and culture and the environmental humanities, with particular interests in multicultural literature, environmental and climate justice, genre studies, and integrating sustainability into writing curricula. I will defend my dissertation, "Unnatural History: Ecological Temporality in Post-1945 American Literature," in spring 2016. I have previously held a lecturer position in the Department of English at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa and have earned Duke's Certificate in College Teaching.
