College Research Associate
Research interestsIn her role as a postdoctoral researcher with the University of Cambridge Centre for Gender Studies and the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence, she examines the relationship between gender and technology. In particular, she is interested in how artificial intelligence and other emerging technologies problematise our concept of what it means to be human, approaching this question from a feminist and anti-racist perspective. Her broad research interests include artificial intelligence, science fiction, posthumanism, gender theory, critical race theory, critical prison studies, and theories of political violence. She undertook her MPhil and doctorate degree in Multi-Disciplinary Gender Studies at the University of Cambridge Centre for Gender Studies, and completed her undergraduate degree in Human, Social, and Political Sciences at Corpus Christi College, University of Cambridge.
