I am an interdisciplinary scholar, writer, and philosopher specializing in the philosophy of gender and sexuality, queer theory, cultural studies, and LGBTQI+ philosophy. I also maintain active research projects in comparative literature, the history of feminist thought, political theory, and philosophy of social science. I obtained my doctorate from Princeton University in 2014.

Prior to coming to the University of Alberta, I taught French and philosophy at Middlebury College, where I was also an Executive Member in the Program in Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies and the Program in Comparative Literature (2014-2015).

I have held a visiting scholar and CAST appointment in the Department of Women’s and Gender Studies here at the University of Alberta since 2016. As a visiting scholar, I have been fortunate to participate in and profit from the intellectually rigorous interdisciplinary community that the WGS faculty, research affiliates, and students foster.

I am always eager to assist and advise students. If you wish to schedule a meeting to discuss WGS-related matters or have any questions about the courses I’m offering, please contact me.
For further information about my publications, research, and teaching, please consult my personal website.
