I am a literary scholar specializing in modern Arabic and Francophone literatures from the Middle East. Originally from Larchmont, New York via Watertown, Massachusetts (with Armenian roots), I have lived, traveled, and studied in Paris, Cairo, Tunis, Tangier, New York, Berkeley, Rabat, Granada, France, Rome, and some other places too. I now live in Providence, Rhode Island, where I teach Comparative Literature at Brown University and hang out with my cat, Cleocatra. You can see my academic bio here.
