My current research explores extra-normal vocal techniques, particularly influenced by Tuvan, Mongolian and Inuit sound cultures and how vocal free improvisation might intersect with (chaos magick) ritual work and Buddhist insight meditation.

As a research, I have interests in feminist, queer and trans politics, intersectionality and ethical engagements with postmodern culture(s), with a focus on writing against normative narratives. A critical engagement with the ethics of performance, cultural appropriation and privilege form the core of my praxis.
