I am an Assistant Professor in the Spanish and Portuguese Department at the University of California, Santa Barbara. I have wide-ranging interdisciplinary interests in literatures and cultures of the Portuguese-speaking world and work within a postcolonial and transnational framework (Portugal, Brazil and Lusophone Africa). Focusing primarily on authors from the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries, I have written on topics such as psychoanalysis and psychotherapy, romanticism and modernism, colonialism, post-colonialism, and, more recently, environmental humanities. I am the author of Depressão e Psicoterapia em António Lobo Antunes: Qualquer coisa que me ajude a existir (LeYa/Texto, 2019) and Livros que respiram: pensamento ecológico e solidariedade nas literaturas em português (Imprensa da Universidade de Coimbra, 2021), as well as co-editor of Mike Tyson para Principiantes, antologia poética de Rui Costa (Assírio & Alvim, 2017) and Primeira Antologia de Micro-ficção Portuguesa (Exodus, 2008).
