My main research interests are the study of environmental humanities in world and postcolonial literature, especially around issues of energy, food, waste and pollution.

Broader research and teaching interests include contemporary global/ world literature, Marxist literary theories; world-systems and world ecology; postcolonial ecocriticism; modernism, realism, the novel; petro-cultures and energy humanities; food regimes and the Green Revolution; with a focus on contemporary fiction.

I have articles published or forthcoming in the Journal of Postcolonial Writing, the Journal of Commonwealth Literature and Green Letters, and chapters in various edited collections. My monograph, tentatively titled The Global Novel and Capitalism in Crisis - Contemporary Literary Narratives is under contract with the Palgrave Macmillan Series “New Comparisons in World Literature”.
