Research
I am the Co-Founder and Co-Lead of QriTical: queer + trans research hub.
My current research program is inspired by two central curiosities:
1) the institutionalization of feminist and queer logics in higher education, including critical studies of EDI, sexualized violence responses, and more recently, the rise of “anti-gender ideology” on university campuses
2) queer kinship, including kinship navigation during the COVID-19 pandemic, environmental/climate justice responses to reproduction through a queer lens, and queer parenting in the time of “parental rights.”

Selected Projects
