She is currently Lecturer in Critical Theory and Curatorial Studies in the Art Department of the University of Minnesota (2020–) and Director and Curator of FD13 (2021–), a residency program focusing on liveness, most recently with Raven Chacon, Kablusiak, Anocha Suwichakornpong, Pio Abad, Yee I-Lann, and Moe Satt.
