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. I frequently travel to Iran for research fieldworks.

Between 2015 and 2019, I was an Australia Research Council DECRA Fellow at UNSW.

My second book is out: "Iranian Literature after the Islamic Revolution. Production and Circulation in Iran and the World" (published in 2021 with 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 editor for the Persian/Iranian Writing and Culture volume of The Literary Encyclopedia, ed. Dr Robert Clark: http://www.litencyc.com, and editor for the Modern Persian literature section of Abstracta Iranica (Peeters publishers). I am also Book Review Editor for Cultural Studies for the journal Iranian Studies.
