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 genre studies (particularly speculative fiction) and (post)critique.
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 and literary studies.
