I am a philosopher working in the fields of feminist philosophy, political philosophy, queer and trans theory, ecofeminist theory as well as critical animal studies.

My latest publication is: "Gender Skepticism, Trans Livability, and Feminist Critique" in Signs (2022).

I currently work as a postdoctoral scholar in Gender Studies, in the Department of Cultures, University of Helsinki, Finland. The title of my project is Animal Trouble: A New Ecofeminist Critique of Speciesism.

I received a PhD in 2017 with a dissertation titled From Violence to Resistance: Judith Butler's Critique of Norms. You can find the abstract in E-thesis.

In the years 2016–2017 I worked as a visiting graduate research scholar in Comparative Literature at New York University, USA. In 2016 I was also a fellow in Prof. Judith Butler's Master Class at The Institute for Critical Social Inquiry (ICSI), The New School for Social Research, NYC, USA.

My expertise and research interests include:
