I am an independent researcher and art worker, with concerns for advocacy and intersectional feminisms. Most recently I have been interested in connecting academia and activism through communal practices, exploring the interweaving of labour and research. In my writing practice I have been focusing on the philosophy of photography in relation to the existence of queer-feminine ecologies.
