My teaching and research are primarily in twentieth century literary, film, and media studies. I also work on writing pedagogy-related issues.

At Guttman, I have created and run the Poetry Abroad program in 2019 and 2022, training undergraduate students in modern poetry through independent study-style research seminars and accompanying them to the International T. S. Eliot Summer School, held at the University of London.

At the CUNY Graduate Center, I teach seminars in film studies and advise PhD and MA students on research projects in formal and informal capacities.
