I am a second-year Ph.D student in German studies at Vanderbilt University. I focus primarily on war, genocide, and media in the 20th century, as well as the intersections between law and literature across centuries. Currently I am working at the Vanderbilt Center for Second Language Studies as a Graduate Student Affiliate where I am involved in a variety of projects and working groups, from digital text mapping to understanding and developing the connections between digital humanities and language and other pedagogies. In particular, I'm currently investigating and developing projects that deal with the pedagogical value of the selfie. I am also the Center's 2015-2016 HASTAC Scholar.
