I study embodiment and the relationships between bodies, ideologies, and knowledge production. I focus on alternative embodiments, specifically the bodies of competitive male bodybuilders, as a means of analyzing the moral, political, social, and psycho-biomedical discourses that render certain bodies “unnatural” while privileging others. Additional areas of interest include queer theory, affect theory, critical animal studies, and critical posthumanism.

I am currently a TA for Gender and Women’s Studies 102: Gender, Women, and Society in Global Perspective.
