His teaching and research emphasize poetry and poetics, modernism and the avant-garde in Europe and the Americas, multiethnic US literature, and transnational studies (especially hemispheric and oceanic approaches). His first book, The Poetry of the Americas: From Good Neighbors to Countercultures offers a detailed literary history of relations among poets in the US and Latin America across the mid-twentieth century.
