I am a Lecturer in Film and Media and a member of the Centre for Gender & Feminist Studies. I have also played (professional) football/soccer in Germany, the US and Scotland.
My research interests are interdisciplinary and include gender and queer theory, feminist film and cultural criticism, question of identity, subjectivity and embodiment, film phenomenology, as well as media and sport.
I have published work on athleticism and cinema, dance in film, sport and (post)feminism, as well as on bodily performance and embodiment and/in film.
My most recent research engages specifically with queer critiques of traditional (film) phenomenology and explores questions of embodiment, sensuousness and affect in relation to a variety of film bodies.
