Welcome to my website. I am a PhD candidate in Sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. 

My research and teaching interests include gender; science and technology studies; sociology of medicine; feminist theory; political sociology; and sociology of sport.

Much of my recent work concerns gender verification practices in Olympic sports. During the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, I wrote a blog post for Australian broadcaster SBS describing my experience competing against Caster Semenya in 2009 and why I oppose the Hyperandrogenism Regulations of the IAAF. My reflections on Semenya's victory were also published by the ABD (Australian Broadcasting Corporation). My interview with CBC Radio can be found here.
