About me

I'm a media scholar, video artist, and curator. I'm currently employed as a postdoctoral fellow at the Università della Svizzera italiana | USI in Lugano, Switzerland. Together with project leaders Kevin B. Lee (Lugano) and Johannes Binotto (Zürich/Lucerne), I just started a new research group, titled "The Video Essay: Memories, Ecologies, Bodies," funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF, 2024-2027). I also serve as Associate Editor for [in]transition: Journal of Videographic Film and Moving Images Studies. Before moving to Switzerland, I conducted the postdoctoral project "The Digital Video Essay" at the Film University Konrad Wolf Babelsberg (funded by the German Research Foundation DFG, 2022-2023). I hold a PhD in Screen Cultures from Northwestern University.

I believe that our contemporary digital media environment demands an interdisciplinary, multi-methodological approach towards understanding and working with moving images.

As such, I predominantly work in and on video art and video essays that remix existing archival, mainstream, and/or found footage. With my video practice, I aim to create meaningful reflections for diverse audiences, combining self-reflexive, poetic, and scholarly informed rhetorical modes, and to evoke a sense of awe for the power of moving images.

Thematically, my videographic and written work is concerned with film/media musicology & sound; global & transnational media networks; landscape and film; the essay film; media history; archive theory & practice; video & installation art; and the politics of taste and canon.
