Research Interests

My research interests lie in areas relating to feminist understandings of gender-based violence, sexual and reproductive health and rights for youth, and queer identity and same-sex sexualities, particularly within post-colonial and post-apartheid contexts. Currently, I am available to supervise research focusing on youth sexual and reproductive health and sexuality education programmes in South Africa.
