Building & Room:
I completed my B.A. at Northern Illinois University in German Language & Literature with a minor in Spanish. The research areas that interest me most are German film, classical German literature and poetry, and linguistics (my favorite works come from the Expressionist era). During my undergraduate studies, I spent many of my breaks traveling around Germany, visiting many cities in the country and experiencing many different regions, ways of living and cuisines – gathering ideas about how Germans live today. Outside of my academic work, I spend most of my time cooking, baking, rock climbing, and spending time with my niece and nephews.
