My areas of expertise are critical and feminist policy studies, with an emphasis on policy discourse and transformative politics. I have written in the areas of state feminism and gender mainstreaming, reproductive politics and motherhood, and violence against women. I teach courses in policy theory, feminist and critical policy studies, and gender and public policy.
