I am a first-generation scholar with a background in American Studies, currently working at Leipzig University’s Collaborative Research Center 1199 — Processes of Spatialization under the Global Condition. My publications and talks explore connections and intersections between spatial imaginations, human geographies and critical cartography, literature, as well as film, game, and horror studies. I'm the author of The West and the Word (de Gruyter, 2020). My habilitation project explores transoceanic dynamics in imperial and literary discourses of the United States.
