With a background in architecture and urbanism, I am a visiting associate professor at Pratt Institute with degrees from the City University of New York, the London School of Economics and the Bartlett School of Architecture (UCL), as well as an MFA in Creative Writing from Washington University in St. Louis, from which I received a Divided City/Mellon Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship to study segregation in fiction and urban morphology in France, Morocco and Germany. My writings have been published in Blackbird, The Collagist/The Rupture, The Evergreen: A New Season in the North, The New Inquiry and several times in Conjunctions. I have received funding and fellowships from OPERA America, Kundiman, The Faber Arts, Sciences and Humanities Residency of Catalonia, the Kimmel Harding Center for the Arts and The Fine Arts Work Center.
