My dissertation, “Feeling American Literature, Reading American Literature: Object Biopolitics in the Traumatized Nation-State,” exists at the collision of feminist, queer and literary theories in order to develop and examine new reading methodologies that arise in response to gendered traumas to argue reading is an experiential learning process that is both revolutionary and reparative. During my time at UB, I taught seven unique courses in Global Gender Studies, as well as "Introduction to Women and Gender Studies" at Buffalo State College. I was also the Graduate Assistant for Educational Programming for the UB Intercultural and Diversity Center, successfully revitalizing UB’s LGBTQ programming for Campus Life. My writing has been featured online on The Fashion Law.
