Personal profile


I obtained a BA in English Studies in 2016 from the University of Oviedo (Spain) with a dissertation on masculinity in the queer Chicano poetry of Francisco X. Alarcón. I also did a year-long research stay at Rollins College (Florida, US) where I worked in the Department of Critical Media and Cultural studies, developing an interest in qualitative research methodologies and autoethnography. I obtained my MA in Critical Theory and Cultural Studies from the University of Nottingham in 2017, where I worked on queer theory.

I hold a PhD in Sociology from the University of Manchester (supervised by Prof Brian Heaphy and examined by Prof Jeffrey Weeks) on sexual fantasies and their impact on HIV prevention and care. 

I am currently Midred Baxter Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Centre for Biomedicine, Self and Society at The University of Edinburgh.

Current Research Interests

I am an interdisciplinary researcher interested in the interface between sexuality, health, memory and online/offline practices. I am currently working on a variety of projects focused on how gay men negotiate HIV risk and COVID-19 risk, people experience memories of the HIV/AIDS pandemic, and use the internet. 

I have authored a report on LGBT sexual health service delivery during COVID-19 and I am interested in engaging with service providers of sexual health nationally and internationally.
