      i am an Amsterdam-based teacher and journalist with an interest in interdisciplinary research and a love for autotheory, narrative non-fiction and literary journalism. 

my writing and research usually focus on the intersections of (pop) culture, feminism, gender and race with specific affinity with questions about identity, the body and the self in the (Western) cultural symbolic and disturbances of the destribution of the sensible.

i am well-versed in feminist theory, gender studies, affect theory, critical race theory, post- and decolonial theory, and theories of embodiment.
