I am an Assistant Professor of Feminist Science and Technology Studies in the Department of Women's Studies at San Diego State University. I study, write, speak, and teach about the social, political, and ethical dimensions of the ways that science, technology, and institutions come together to shape people's lives, and the kinds of possibilities for living, and dying, available to them. I also speak and give workshops about issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion within the academy, and within STEM. Prior to moving to the West Coast, I was a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Program in Gender and Sexuality Studies at Princeton University from 2016 to 2019.

I am the advisor for the Science, Technology and Society Studies (STSS) minor program, as well as the Chair of SafeZones@SDSU. I am honored to be on the board of directors for interACT: Activists for Intersex Youth.


I was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and am the daughter of diehard Raptors fans. Prior to receiving my PhD in Philosophy from the University of Alberta, I received a MA and BA in Philosophy, as well as a BMSc in Immunology and Microbiology from the University of Western Ontario. My areas of specialization are Feminist Science Studies; Feminist Philosophy; Ethics (esp. Bioethics); Philosophy of Sex, Gender and Sexuality; and Philosophy of Science (esp. Philosophy of Biology and Medicine). My work also intersects with Social and Political Philosophy, and Philosophy of Race. I additionally situate my scholarship within Critical Disability Studies.

In my free time I enjoy spending time with friends, reading speculative fiction and sci-fi, taking care of my growing collection of houseplants, cooking, and hanging out with my dog, Butch (who is the best of all dogs).
