After my undergraduate studies in Amherst and ENS Paris, I joined the Department of Comparative Literature at Yale University in 2019. Broadly speaking, I work on 20th-century Caribbean literature in English, Dutch, French, and Spanish. My dissertation is a cultural-literary history of the Caribbean 1970s, centered around performance practices and events such as Carifesta. In all my writing, I attempt to maintain a Pan-Caribbean, regionalist perspective. My article on Carifesta in relation to the life and work of Edward Kamau Brathwaite appeared in archipelagos in 2022. In recent years, I have shared my work in progress with audiences at the West Indian Literature Conference and the American Comparative Literature Association.
