My research interests are broadly situated within digital media, feminist theories and ethnographic methods. Specifically I am interested in girls’ digital cultures, contemporary feminist activism and solidarities, the performance of feminine selves online, and public girlhoods.
My first book, Girls’ Feminist Blogging in a Postfeminist Age (Routledge, 2015) uses ethnographic methods to explore girls’ blogging as a significant practice of contemporary feminist activism. Read more about it in the Book section of this website.
I received my PhD from the University of Texas at Austin in 2013, and also hold a Master’s of Journalism from the University of British Columbia (2007) and a Bachelor of Arts Honours from the University of Saskatchewan (2005).
I am an avid yogi, aspiring potter, and occasional traveller.
