As an urban, cultural and feminist geographer, my research interests are in three areas: access to public space; the politics of representations; and the socio-spatial regulation of marginalized persons. My current research centers on the regulation of public space and how it relates to violence against homeless persons.
Other interests include geographies of media and popular culture. I have written articles (published and currently under review) on horror films and internet pornography, using a feminist lens to understand geographies of the body.
