Her research investigates dissenting and normative discourses from a feminist, critical race, and queer theory perspectives. Her dissertation focuses on US popular discourses about non-monogamy, examining how they relate to the contemporary conditions of living and shaped in relation to a long tradition of racialized and gendered narratives. She has published on queer safe spaces, using critical analysis to examine their inherent contradictions and their connection to securitization discourses. She holds an MA in Cultural Studies from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and a BA in Psychology and Sociology from Tel-Aviv University.
