I am currently a postdoctoral lecturer in the English Department at the University of Virginia, where I study contemporary global fiction, violence, critical theory, and visual media. I also teach classes on gender and global literature, expository writing, writing about pop music, global cultural studies, and other topics. I did an M.Phil. degree at Trinity College Dublin and have spent a fair amount of time studying and teaching Irish literature and culture.
I've also written about music, books, and theater for publications including the Los Angeles Review of Books, the Washington City Paper, Paste, PopMatters, and Slant Magazine. You can find some selected clips under "Culture Writing."
UVa Today, UVa’s publication, recently wrote a profile on my double life as an academic and music journalist. If you’d like to see how I see these pursuits as related, then please check it out!
