I am a literary scholar specialising in non-fictional and non-canonical genres, such as diaristic and auto/biographical texts; landscape- and tourist writing; and the various forms of semi-/literary prose published in newspapers and magazines. Through my experience in both English and Luxembourgish Studies I am interested in the interconnectedness of cultures, which brings a comparative and interdisciplinary dimension to my research and my teaching.
