I received both a Bachelor's degree in literature and a Master's degree in Literary, Cultural, and Textual Studies from the University of Central Florida. My current research interests focus on (post)critique, "new" formalisms, and genre studies.
I have conferenced on the popular culture zombie and on comics studies, and I have published on metamodern subjectivity and on cyberpunk sf. For pedagogical purposes, I use strategies of (post)critique and genre studies, and concepts from film, comics, and literary studies.
