My dissertation, Conflict of Interest: Heterosexuality and Genre in U.S. Modernity, traces the emergence of modern heterosexual identity in American fiction and film, 1890-1930. Other primary areas of research include visual art, trans studies, and psychoanalysis.

I have given invited talks at diffrakt: zentrum für theoretische peripherie in Berlin, the Estonian Academy of Arts, the University of Amsterdam, the University of Oxford, and French Riviera Gallery in London. In summer 2021 I taught a seminar on histories and cultures of the global AIDS crisis to high school students as part of the Penn Summer Program.
