I hold a BA from the Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Portugal, an MA with Distinction from the University of Greenwich, and a PhD from Goldsmiths, University of London.
I'm interested in the intersections of visual culture and performance with queer theory, philosophy, geohumanities and posthumanism as ways of rethinking embodiment and the visual vis-à-vis the philosophical and political challenges posed by the blurring of 'human'/'nonhuman'/'inhuman' divides.
In parallel to that, I am also interested in articulations of sex, sexuality and gender identities in performance and visual culture, particularly the ways in which themes of disease, infection, risk, and non-normative sexual practices bring the non-/in-/human to bear on the production of the Self and the latter's circulation in contemporary visual ecologies.
I am a Series Editor for Cultural Studies & Critical Theory at the Open Library of Humanities.
