I am a Ph.D. student in the English department at Cornell University. Before coming to Cornell, I was a visiting fellow in the history department at Harvard University.

My scholarship, op-eds, and creative writing have been published by The Journal of American Culture, The Journal of Popular Culture, Ethnic and Racial Studies, The Nation, The Los Angeles Review of Books, The Progressive, Newsweek, Vice, Salon, Rattle, Southwest Review, The Boston Globe, and elsewhere.

Off campus, I am a writing mentor in PEN America’s Prison Writing Program.
