Research Focus

My research is at the intersection of gender, security studies and queer theory. I research LGBTQ inclusion in Women, Peace and Security practices as well as queer analysis of security studies more broadly. 

With my research I bridge a feminist security studies approach with queer theory to offer a more complete gender analysis of how the implementation of the Women, Peace and Security resolutions impact lesbian, bisexual and transgender women living in conflict-related environments. The central contribution of my research is a queer security analysis of women’s experiences in conflict-related environments. I am also interested in considering how best to include LGBTQ individuals in peacebuilding initiatives in post-conflict environments.


 I received my PhD from the University of Massachusetts Boston in the Global Governance and Human Security program in 2018. I was the 2018-2019 ISA James N. Rosenau Post-Doctoral Fellow. For Spring 2019 I was also a Visiting Fellow at the Centre for Women, Peace and Security at the London School for Economics and Politics.

I am the Associate Digital Media Editor for the International Feminist Journal of Politics where I edit the blog.

I also serve as the Member-at-Large and Communications Officer for the LGBTQA Caucus of the International Studies Association.

I am excited about the opportunity to talk about my research as well as global LGBTQ politics and have given numerous guest lectures including at the University of Sussex, the University of Essex, Wellesley, the University of Massachusetts - Amherst, Roger Williams University and Juilliard.
