My research is situated at the intersection of world literature and the environmental humanities. I have published work on postcolonial and ecological politics, as well as contemporary continental philosophy, literature and ecology.

My current projects focus on how world literature responds to the ethical and aesthetic questions posed by climate change, the Anthropocene as post-disciplinary concept for the arts and sciences, and the impact of the environmental humanities on theories of world literature.

I have special expertise in modern and contemporary world literature, ecological literature, the environmental humanities, philosophy of science, continental philosophy and critical theory.

My doctoral research staged an encounter between world literature and the thought of Gilles Deleuze, using the concept of the line of flight (ligne de fuite) as a philosophical and methodological refrain.

I am a member of the Association for the Study of Literature and Environment and the Postcolonial Studies Association (UK).
