About

I am an independent researcher and art worker, with concerns for advocacy and feminisms. Most recently I have been interested in connecting academia and activism through communal practices, exploring the interweaving of labour and research. In my own research I have long been focusing on the philosophy of photography in relation to the existence of living (or decaying) ecologies and the female/ queer presence within them.
