I have been in love with language for as long as I can remember. Having cultivated an abiding obsession with French, Italian and English Literature as a teenager, I completed my undergraduate studies at Monash University in Spanish and Philosophy. I spent two years in Mexico, at the Tecnológico de Monterrey in Guadalajara, and returned again in 2014 to complete research for my PhD in Translation Studies.
My current research interests include contemporary Latin American literature, translation ethics, and literary imaginings of urban space in the postmodern city. As well as teaching within the Literary Studies and Spanish & Latin American Studies programs at Monash, I am the translations editor for Cordite Poetry Review, assistant editor at The AALITRA Review, and a coordinator with the Monash-Warwick Migration, Identity and Translation Network. In my spare time I study flamenco, translate obscure Latin American novels, and write creative short fiction for a number of literary magazines and journals.
