Her research explores the intersecting areas of urban life and spatial relations, visual culture, and the negotiated (and contested) borders of public and private life in contemporary society. She is also very interested in visual representation and new media practices. Her current research examines the political dimensions surrounding visual recording in/of shared spaces.
Her extra-curricular interests include street photography, public festivals, live performances, film, soccer and yoga. She is also strongly committed to social justice.
