I am Associate Professor at the University of Massachusetts Boston. My research focuses on literature and visual art from Latin America and the United States, and reads these in relation to the development of the global economy from the end of the nineteenth century to the beginning of the twenty-first. I am currently at work on a co-edited volume of essays titled Literature and the Global Contemporary (Palgrave, forthcoming), and a monograph on literature and the ends of autonomy in the Americas (Northwestern UP, forthcoming).

I am an Associate Professor in Spanish American Literature at the University of Oxford and Fellow and Tutor in Spanish at Trinity College in that institution. I am the author of one monograph, Ghost-Watching American Modernity: Haunting, Landscape, and the Hemispheric Imagination (Fordham, 2012), and co-editor, with Esther Peeren, of Popular Ghosts: The Haunted Spaces of Everyday Culture (Continuum, 2010) and The Spectralities Reader: Ghosts and Haunting in Contemporary Critical Theory (Bloomsbury, 2013). I am completing a second monograph project, Modernist Laboratories: Science and the Poetics of Progress in the Spanish American Fin de Siècle. With Joanna Page, I have edited a collection of essays entitled Latin America at the Vanguard: Science and its Imaginaries. I am also collaborating on a different editorial project, with Andrew Thacker and Eric Bulson:  The Oxford Critical and Cultural History of Global Modernist Magazines, vol. 1: South America, Central America, and the Caribbean.  My main and current research interests are the intersections of literature and science across different traditions; popularisation of fin-de-siècle science in Latin America in periodicals and its intersections with modernismo; global modernisms; transatlantic literary relations; little magazines (1880s-mid-20th century); decadence and its global perception; life-writing
