Research Interests

I completed my PhD in Feminist Sociology at Queen's University in 2018, where I was a SSHRC CGS Doctoral Scholar. Theorizing femme identities and systemic forms of feminine devaluation, my work focuses on perceived femininity and its impact on the experiences of marginalization and oppression among sexual and gender minorities. Within this framework, I apply feminist and femme theory to the study of femme identities, femmephobia, social prejudices, and the links between gender, gender expression, health, and fitness.
