I am a digital humanist conducting multi-disciplinary research in transmedia platforms of scholarship, presentation, and pedagogy. My work examines grunge as a late 20th-century performative expression of political resistance that encompasses music, art, and fashion. This research is guided by Geomusicology, Sound Studies, Gender Studies, Feminist & Queer Musicology, and Performance scholarship that is conducted in Digital Humanities applications.
In 2015, I earned my M.A. in History from San Diego State University where I published the first born-digital interactive thesis; grunge feminism: performing gender paradox in queered plays of hypertextuality. I joined SDSU’s Department of Classics and Humanities as a Lecturer in 2016 where I explored inverted approaches to teaching Honors and GE Courses utilizing transmedia, deformance, and mixed realities. Currently, I am a Ph.D. student in the Communication Department at the University of California San Diego.
