As a PhD candidate in Northwestern’s department of French and Francophone Studies, I primarily focus on modern post-World War II French and Francophone cinema and poetry. My dissertation studies the instability of history in the works of Jean-Luc Godard, Claire Denis and Emmanuel Hocquard, with a special focus on their use of color as a tool for challenging representation. I also have a strong interest in critical theory, race and diaspora studies, and gender and sexuality studies.

My article on Jean-Luc Godard’s revision of early comic books is forthcoming in the journal Etudes Francophones (Spring 2020), and I have a chapter contribution on François Ozon’s cinematic experimentation with genre and gender forthcoming in an essay collection on Ozon by Edinburgh University Press (Fall 2020).

In 2018-2019, I was a graduate fellow in the Paris Program in Critical Theory in Paris.

I am originally from Macedonia. After graduating from University Saints Cyril and Methodius in Skopje, Macedonia and Sophia-Antipolis in Nice, France, summa cum laude, I decided to pursue graduate work at Miami University in Ohio and subsequently Northwestern.
