I have an interdisciplinary approach to sociology and my research into marginalized bodies and subjectivity. My theoretical expertise is grounded within the context of "lived experience" which has served me well as an advocate for disabled people and as a consultant on disability issues. My current research joins nuanced readings of poststructuralist theory, and radical theory of subjectivity to discuss rupture as a productive force.
