Biography: I received my MA in German from The University of Warsaw (Poland), and my Ph.D. in German Literature and Translation Studies from the University of Texas at Austin. As a graduate student at UT, I taught German, Swedish, and Polish. Prior to joining the faculty at Texas State University in 2011, I taught high-school German in the Austin area and organized student exchanges via the German-American Partnership Program.

In addition to all levels of German at Texas State, I also teach Foreign Language Acquisition and supervise student teachers in modern languages. On behalf of our World Languages and Literatures department and together with my colleague Kayla Hill, I coordinate the Texas State German Contest, a state-level scholastic competition for high school students. Every other summer I direct our study abroad program in Munich.

Research Interests: My current research examines the politics of representation and display in the Austro-Hungarian Empire, with focus on Habsburg Galicia.
