I am an assistant professor of Comparative Literature and Cultural Studies.  I specialize in the new approaches to comparative literature and literary theory, examining the recent scopes of comparative literary studies with regards to decoloniality, imperialism, and globalization. I study the development of literary theory in areas of race, gender, and ethnicity, to examine the representations of power structure in contemporary world literature, film, and popular culture. I also apply my knowledge of literary theory in analyzing and understanding the theories of rhetoric and composition from the early traditional product-based prescribed methodology, to the recent disciplinary and rhetorical approaches

In 2011, I received my Ph.D. in Comparative Literature and Cultural Studies from the University of Arkansas, on a Fulbright scholarship that shaped my perspective about the value of diversity and intercultural communication
