Before starting my DPhil I studied Franco-German studies at the universities of La Sorbonne (Paris IV) and Bonn. I did a Master in German and Comparative Literature at the universities of Bonn and St Andrews.
I am now a second year DPhil at Hertford College. My research focuses on women writers of the end of the nineteenth century in France, Germany and Norway. I analyse and compare their work and look at how they respond to Naturalist writing, especially when it comes to the representation of femininity and mental health.
I am also part of the third cohort of Europeaum scholars, a programme aimed at DPhil students interested in European policy. Alongside a group of seven other students from all over Europe, I work on a project aiming at improving democratic participation.
This academic year, I am teaching Paper III and IV in German at Worcester College, prose translation for second years at Lady Margaret Hall, as well as the French Thought seminar. I am also co-convening the German Graduate Seminar and we look forward to organising the 20th German Symposium
