Full CV

I spend a lot of time practicing, thinking, and reading about translation in the broadest sense of the term: as an encounter between different modes of expression. Some of my research interests include 20th and 21st century poetry, hybrid forms of writing, experimental translation, and translation theory. With my current projects, I’m interested in exploring the interconnectedness of body, text, and performance, specifically as it relates aural/oral experiences (sound poetry, homophonics, non-human sounds).
