Research Interests: 

To date, my research has focused on questions of gender, race, and self-representation in television, new media, and pornography. My dissertation examines selfies and self-representational art by trans women and transfeminine people, analyzing how these artists and selfie creators use selfie aesthetics to interrogate intimacy, narcissism, visibility, doubling, and the archive. My research has been published in Porn Studies, Feminist Media Studies, and Jump Cut. As a filmmaker, I work primarily in participatory documentary and essay film.
