I’m currently a Ph.D student in the Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies program at Oregon State University. My work is primarily interested in the ways that Transwomxn/AMAB Trans generate alternative epistemologies/imagine different worlds (primarily against the carceral state) in their cultural productions. I’m also interested in the relationship between transness and disability.

I have an MA in Cultural Studies from the University of Washington Bothell (2014) and an MA in American Studies from Washington State University (2018). The former I was particularly interested in the dynamics of race and geography, as well as community-based storytelling. The latter continued that interest in race and geography, but mainly in a historical analysis between Indigenous Peoples and Asian North Americans in the Pacific Northwest.
