I am a scholar & SF writer teaching in the Department of German & Slavic Languages & Literatures at University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill. My research considers how changing paradigms in technology, science and industry alter how we live and work together. I was part of the 2018 class of the Clarion Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers Workshop. I write science fiction under the banner of eco-revenge: my stories heed the flora, fauna, mountains and mites that absorb human dramas. I write worlds where they can and do retaliate.
