ABOUT

IMG_2312In August 2017, I’ll be joining Penn State University as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies and a research associate with the Rock Ethics Institute.

Prior to moving to State College, I was the Postdoctoral Fellow in Gender, Race, and Science in the Department of Gender Studies at Indiana University Bloomington and Assistant Director and Lecturer in the Women’s Studies Program at East Tennessee State University.  I’m also the current LGBTQ Caucus Chair for the Southeastern Women’s Studies Association.

My research interests include queer theory, trans and intersex studies, science and technology studies, feminist bioethics, continental philosophy, and decolonial thought. My first book, Sexing the Monster: Intersexuality, Queer Embodiment, and Becoming, is forthcoming from University of Nebraska Press as part of the series  Expanding Frontiers: Interdisciplinary Approaches to Studies of Women, Gender, and Sexuality.

 I teach introductory, upper level, and graduate courses in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies.

When I’m not doing nerd stuff, I’m climbing rocks, backpacking, riding bikes, and running around in the woods with dogs.
