Personal profile

Research Interests

I am a cultural and political geographer with particular interest in critical perspectives on security, processes of border making, geographies of embodiment, critical cultural analysis and feminist and queer theory. My research examined the use of border making technologies in the Israeli control over the occupied Palestinian territory. I also research political activism and the securitization of public spaces. Prior research projects of mine included analysis of modes of embodiment and the political and social implications of the new reproductive technologies.
