Graduate Teaching Fellow
English and Comparative Literature

My research focuses on environmental justice in the Anthropocene. I am interested in the convergences in the fields of ecocriticism, post-colonial theory and global socioeconomics, to examine how the effects of climate change, displacement, toxic and electronic waste, and resource extraction are differentially experienced across the Global North and South. I am also interested in studying environmental advocacy through the intersections between art and activism in grassroots movements. I study global anglophone literature, with a focus on environmental justice movements in India and the U.S.A.
