I'm a Ph.D. Candidate in Contemporary American Literature at Indiana University in Bloomington. I research the ways that technological concerns associated with computers intersect the culture and the ways that we inflect narratives. I look at New Journalism around the computer industry, as well as fiction and cultural artifacts that surround information technologies of late 20th and early 21st centuries.

Secondarily, I'm interested in contemporary authors and contemporary literary movements. My first edited volume about Chuck Palahniuk has just been published, and I'm planning similar works to this in the future.
