I am a doctoral candidate in the Political Science Program at The Graduate Center, CUNY, with a defense date in August 2018. I am primarily interested in trans politics, queer social movements, and feminist thought. I have specialized training in American politics, Women’s and Gender Studies, and mixed methods. My dissertation, short-titled Feeling as Knowing, explores the everyday dimensions of politics and the ordinary in trans communities using affect theory, phenomenology, and archival research. Parts of this dissertation has appeared in in TSQ: Transgender Studies Quarterly, Wagadu: A Journal of Transnational Women’s and Gender Studies, and LGBTQ Politics: A Critical Reader.
I identify as non-binary (they/them). Please feel free to explore my site, and contact me if you have any questions.
