I am a 5th-year PhD candidate in the Department of English at The University of British Columbia. My dissertation is on the aesthetics and politics of silence in narratives of sexual violence. I also study multicultural and Indigenous literatures in Canada, the politics of the body, autobiography, trauma, gender, and sexuality.
I love Granny Smith apples, Carl Sagan, a nice cup of Earl Grey tea, classical music, Star Trek (super much, I’m one of THOSE people), alphabet soup, wearing black, contemporary dance. I’m an introvert who spends far too much time buying makeup at Sephora, a social-media aficionado, and a book-nerd.
