My research focuses on the theory and practice of intermedial semiotics between music and literature in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. My undergraduate thesis argued for a relationship between literary and musical representations of consciousness and problematization of literary and musical paradigm in Europe during the long nineteenth century. My masters thesis focused on the Italian avant-garde composer Luigi Nono and his poetic and philosophical lineage in the works of Friedrich Hölderlin and Walter Benjamin. I have published or forthcoming articles in MLN, Comparative Literature, New German Critique, The German Quarterly, and Variaciones Borges.
