I joined the Department of Film and Media as an assistant professor in 2017. The courses that I teach at Emory revolve around my research areas, namely the history of film and media theory, French culture and cinema, philosophical approaches to film and media, and the history of world cinema. Prior to joining the Department of Film and Media, I taught at North Carolina State University, Université Sorbonne Nouvelle (Paris 3), and Université Paris-Est Créteil Val-de-Marne.

My research has been published in Film-Philosophy, Discourse: Journal for Theoretical Studies in Media and Culture, Screen, and New Review of Film and Television Studies. I am currently completing a monograph that investigates the overlooked role of cinema in Jacques Derrida’s oeuvre, as well as the timeliness of deconstruction for contemporary film and media studies.
