Research interests

My research explores gender, sexuality and identity. I am interested in how these are negotiated and contested both in contexts of everyday life and across life courses, as well as within different cultural and political settings. I have primarily worked with queer men and masculine identified people in the People’s Republic of China (PRC) and the United Kingdom (UK). I work ethnographically and from phenomenological perspectives, exploring how people understand themselves though their relations to others and how those relations are situated in and shaped by specific political, spatial, temporal, technological and economic contexts.
