ABOUT ME

I am completing my doctoral dissertation, Staging Queer Feelings: The Affective Economy of Fashion Photography at the Turn of the Twenty-first Century, at the University of Edinburgh, where I teach queer studies and supervise dissertations in fashion and visual culture in the School of Design. I am the convener of SEXES, an international research cluster involving gender and sexuality studies scholars, and the founder and organizer of a monthly queer theory forum across the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences. Prior to embarking on my PhD I worked for several years as a fashion editor in New York, first in the styling department at Vogue and then as a freelancer. My editorial work has appeared in Vogue Italia, L'Officiel, Paris Match, and Style Corriere della Sera, among others.
