My research and academic interests span American literature and culture of the mid-nineteenth century to the early-twentieth century. I’m particularly interested in intersections between American and Russian literatures, spaces, and people, and I usually engage these literary and geographic intersections through transnational, eco-materialist, and archipelagic frameworks. My work on Russian American literary, cultural, and environmental exchange has appeared both at academic conferences and in peer-reviewed publications, including most recently an article titled “Rerouting Russian America: Decontinentalized Alaska, Archipelagic Poetics, and Speaking Glaciers" published in Interdisciplinary Studies in Literature and the Environment (ISLE).
