I am an assistant professor of modern and contemporary art history at Swarthmore College.

I write about contemporary art, art biennials, and the politics of globalism.

Throughout the years I have been affiliated with a number of editorial and curatorial projects.

My teaching revisits the history of Euro-American modernism from a transnational lens that foregrounds art's imbrication in the social fabric.

At Swarthmore College I teach introductory classes, mid-level courses, and honors seminars about the histories of production, institutionalization, and valuation of modern and contemporary art.

Prior to joining Swarthmore I taught courses on modern and contemporary art history at the University of California, San Diego, and at San Diego State University.
