essica is a second-year DPhil researcher in anthropology, specialising in gender, sexuality, and the body. She is endlessly fascinated by the messy, passionate ways that we relate to and push against the sensuous flesh suits that mark our presence in the world. Her current work involves ethnographic research with trans and non-binary adults affected by disordered eating in Brighton (UK). As a queer woman and an intersectional feminist, she is committed to challenging cissexism, white supremacy, and heteronormativity in academia and beyond. Alongside her research, she is volunteering with Brighton & Hove LGBT Switchboard to develop a framework for inclusive research and practice. Jessica’s research is funded by the ESRC and Clarendon Fund, and she holds a BA Hons in History (Cambridge University), an MSc in Social Policy and Planning (LSE), and an MSc in Medical Anthropology (Oxford University).
