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; feminist theory; medical sociology; and sociology of sport.

Much of my recent work concerns gender verification practices in Olympic sports. During the Rio Olympic Games in 2016, I wrote a blog post for Australian broadcaster SBS describing my experience competing against Caster Semenya in 2009 and why I support her campaign to become the best female 800m runner of all time. My reflections on Semenya's victory were published by the ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation). You can also listen to my interview with CBC Radio here.
