I completed my doctoral studies at the Research Training Group Minor Cosmopolitanisms with a joint PhD fellowship between Potsdam University and University of New South Wales (Australia). Before that, I received a Masters degree in Transnational Literature, Theatre and Film at the University of Bremen, and a Bachelor degree in English-Speaking Cultures and Political Science at the University of Bremen and Birmingham City University (UK). I worked as an interpreter for women affected by HIV at the Bremer Public Health Department and as the coordinator for the Volunteer, English and Youth Zones Departments of the Bulgarian Youth and Children Parliament. My academic research revolves around Critical Theory and Experimental Literature. My dissertation investigated tropes of futurity embedded in the American Avant-garde canon. My non-academic engagements include performance art and photography.
