Personal profile

Research interests

The PhD project I am currently working on is researching trans and non-binary embodied experiences and the implications for urban planning theory and practice. How does contemporary English local planning practice incorporate gender into policy and practice? Can planning be inclusive of trans and non-binary residents?

I am utilising creative mapping methods to explore trans and non-binary embodiment and spatialities, alongside discourse analysis and stakeholder interviews to understand local planning practice.

My research interests are contemporary urban governance and the role of planning within this; the geographies of gender and sexuality; British planning and it's relationship to colonialism; queer and transfeminist political praxis.
