I am a London-based journalist, researcher, and Lecturer in Digital and Visual Media at London Metropolitan University.
My research interests lie in understanding transformative aspects of digital media produced from the margins of society in its technological, visual, and discursive convergence.
I am the author of Globalized Queerness (Bloomsbury, 2023) and Peripheral Media (Rowman & Littlefield, 2018). I have published widely on digital activist cultures, social media discourse, queer media, and Latin American studies.
I hold a PhD in Sociology from City, University of London and an M.A. in Media and Communications from the same university. I hold two B.A. degrees, one in Journalism and another in Humanities, with a minor in History of Art. I have taught undergraduates and graduates at City, University of London, King’s College London, and John Cabot University in Rome, Italy.
I am also a photographer and an arts writer.
