Periods:  Modern and Contemporary

Languages: Russian, French, German

Research Interests: the intersection of literature and visual art; ego-documents as literature; naturalism, realism, and materialism

I received a B.A. in Comparative Literature and Russian from the University of Oregon before coming to Princeton in 2014. I am interested in exploring different approaches to modern art and literature, and in my research I often draw from scholarship in art history, philosophy and linguistics. Most recently I have been occupied with early 20th-century Russian/Soviet theories of art and literature.
