I’m an Americanist interested in popular culture, speculative futures, ethnic studies, critical theory, and the future of work. I graduated from the Program in American Studies at Yale in late 2013, lectured for a couple of years at Frankfurt University, then became Assistant Professor of American Studies at the University of St Gallen, Switzerland in 2016. I’m currently working on my first book, “Un-American Dreams,” and doing preliminary thinking and research for a book on the cultural history and theory of automation.
