BA (Sorbonne University, Paris); PhD (SOAS, University of London)
I work on modern and contemporary Middle Eastern literatures, particularly on Persian literature; World Literature; literature and globalization; sociology of literature; Digital Humanities.
I was trained in France, the United Kingdom, Iran and the United States (Fulbright Visiting Fellow at Harvard University) before coming to Australia in 2013.
Between 2015 and 2019, I was an Australia Research Council DECRA Fellow.
My second book was published in 2021: "Iranian Literature after the Islamic Revolution. Production and Circulation in Iran and the World" (Edinburgh UP): https://edinburghuniversitypress.com/book-iranian-literature-after-the-islamic-revolution.html

I am interested in translation studies and in the practice of translation. My translations of Iranian short stories into French have been published in literary journals, and I have translated Persian texts into English with Ali Alizadeh.
I am Associate Editor for the Q1 journal Iranian Studies (Cambridge UP) and editor for the Modern Persian literature section of Abstracta Iranica (Peeters publishers).
