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 visual culture in the College of Art. 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 as a fashion editor in New York, first in the fashion 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.
