Biography

After having earned my M.A. in French, I am continuing my doctoral studies in eighteenth and nineteenth-century French literature here at the University of Texas at Austin.

In terms of literary research, I am currently focusing on the formation of the novel in post-revolutionary France. Along these lines, my dissertation project examines the narrative representation of homo-affinity and incest in the French Sentimental novel (1770-1850).

When I'm not writing and researching, I can be found practicing jazz music on my trumpet, or seeking out live performances of blues and jazz music here in Austin. If I'm doing neither of those things, I'm probably cooking some Italian-American recipe, or trying my hand, again, at duck à l'orange.

Interests

19th Century French, Queer Studies, The Philosophy of Emotion,
