About

Previous degrees:
B.A. Sociology and Gender Studies, New College of Florida 

Specialty Areas:
Gender; Embodiment; Bodies; Queer Studies, Trans Studies, and Masculinities

Research interests:

I am interested in the intersections of gender, the body, and embodiment, and in particular, how these processes are shaped by heteronormative and cisnormative structures. I am further interested in examining how gender is being reconfigured and how bodies are tools and sources of power in constructing and enacting identity.
