Personal profile

I am first year PhD student funded by SeNSS-ESRC under the 1+3 Human Geography pathway. My research interests include feminist political geography, intimate geopolitics, assemblage theory, and all things menstruation! I use she/her/hers pronouns.

My PhD 'Seeing Red: Alter-Geopolitics of Menstrual Management and Activism in the United Kingdom' seeks to examine menstrual activism as a form of alter-geopolitics, a type of feminist geopolitics done through action and forged outside of elite geopolitical circles and the state. My research aims to bridge the gap between menstrual activism and scholarship while also making contributions to feminist political geography.
