I recently defended 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. At Edinburgh College of Art, in the Design department, I teach and supervise dissertations in visual culture, fashion, and design. I am the convener of SEXES, a 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 ItaliaL'Officiel, Paris Match, and Style Corriere della Sera
