I am a PhD candidate and teaching associate at the University of Edinburgh, where I research the visual cultures of fashion and queer theory. I lecture and publish on queer representation in fashion media, transnational fashion cultures, and theories of style and embodiment. Currently, I am working on the political meaning of crossdressing in the work of Italian philosopher, activist, and performer Mario Mieli. I have given talks and delivered papers across Europe and the United States, and my research has appeared or is forthcoming in refereed journals including Criticism, Aisthesis, Fashion Theory, and The International Journal of Fashion Studies. I also disseminate my research through non-academic channels by writing for publications such as FOAM Magazine and Fashion Projects.
