As literary scholar, translator, and part of the permanent faculty at the University of Bucharest for several years, she widely wrote on modern and postmodern fiction, cultural studies, and global social issues. She is currently working on a book with the title "ScanDADAl" about the avant-garde logic of dispute. Blogging on Arcade interlaces the dimensions mentioned above.
