Personal profile


My research explores changing practices of gender and race through media, spanning digital self-representational practices, popular culture and self-branding. I am particularly interested in the politics of emotion in contemporary understandings of life, work, and successful selfhood. My work has appeared in journals such as Feminist Media Studies, Social Media + Society, the European Journal of Cultural Studies and the Journal of Gender Studies.
