I enjoy walking with my dog Blixa on the lakeshore paths, running, and binge-watching Stranger Things. When I can, I take advantage of the many excellent music and food venues in Chicago. I am getting back into yoga - at the instigation of preceptor Amos. I also aspire to keep my house plants alive. Before moving here, I was a lawyer in Australia.
I have a Ph.D. in English from the University of Chicago. My research interests are in contemporary Anglophone literature, postcolonial studies, the bildungsroman, melodrama, human rights, and gender and sexuality.
