About

My research asks these broad questions: How do people build, make sense of and navigate within private and public spaces? How do classed and gendered experiences shape the way people relate to the material, social, and sensory world around them?

I am an Associate Editor at Journal of Consumer Research and  Consumption Markets and Culture.
