Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests are broadly around philosophy of time, utopian studies, feminist philosophy, gender and sexuality studies, trans theory, body theory, humanism, posthumanism, antihumanism, materialisms. I'm interested in relations between normativity and various forms of individual, social, legal, corporeal disobedience.

A lot of my work has so far dealt with trans embodiment, forms of corporeal/spatial dissonance, gender recognition.

Would consider PhD students interested in related topics.
