Below outlines some of my current and most recent work that includes research papers, academic interview transcript(s) and conference presentations.

Current Project(s)

I am currently co-authoring a series of research papers with Prof. Deevia Bhana (South African Research Chair for Gender and Childhood Sexuality) on the gendered experiences of teenage girls in Umlazi, a South African township to be published in the journal Gender. Updated information will be posted in due course.
