I’m a PhD Candidate in Media Studies at Rutgers University.

My research is situated in the fields of media, culture, gender, and affect studies, currently focused on the cultural figure of the sad girl.

In 2013, I graduated from the MA program in Media, Culture, Communication at New York University, which culminated in the MA thesis “Tumblr Feminism – Third-Wave Subjectivities in Practice,” written under the advisement of professor Laura Portwood-Stacer.

I was born and raised in Lund, Sweden, and obtained a Bachelor of Science in Gender Studies from Lund University, including a year at University of California Los Angeles to fulfill requirements for a Sociology minor.

I have previously worked for the Feminist Press and Ms. Magazine. An archive of my writing can be found at the Ms. Magazine blog.
