Life After Ertegun House

I am currently a PhD student in Yale’s English Department, where I continue to work at the intersection of poetry, critical theory, and theology. I remain particularly interested in the way that formal and visual breakdown becomes its own form of representation. Together with Emily Cox, I help run the East Coast Ertegun alumni group in the US.

My time in the Ertegun House made me a more disciplined scholar, a broader thinker, and a more fervent reader. It is a once-in-a-lifetime place with the most incredible people, and I will be forever better for my experience there.
