With a background in digital scientific archives and art, I am interested in how objectivity and power are constructed through natural history museums. By using Disability Studies and Queer Theory as lenses to understand power and authority within archives, my research traces the conflation of disability, race and animality within natural history and centers inquiry on how colonialism can be further understood by looking at biological archives. Outside academia, I am involved in disability justice, design justice, and social justice technologies.
