I received my H.BA. from the University of Toronto in German Studies and European Studies in June 2016, after spending a year at the Karl-Franzens Universität in Graz, Austria as an exchange student in 2013-14. I graduated from my M.A. in German from the University of Toronto in November 2017. My research paper focused on the underground poetry of the Prenzlauer Berg Connection in the 1980s. My current research interest involves ecocriticism and environmental discourses in East German literature, with a special focus on environmental awareness and representations of industrial pollution in the works of Christa Wolf. Aside from academics, you can find me exploring the quaint, hidden corners of our world. I enjoy practicing my four languages when I travel and meet new people from across the world!
