I graduated from Princeton University in 2009 with a concentration in Sociology. In January 2011, I started writing my doctoral dissertation in Media Studies through the Journalism and Media Research Centre at the University of New South Wales in Sydney. I am the recipient of an Australian Postgraduate Award, a competitive scholarship awarded to students of exceptional research potential.
My undergraduate thesis, Outsider Trading, chronicled the experiences of women in their early- and mid-twenties who work on Wall Street’s traditionally male-dominated trading floors. My research was conducted under the supervision of Professor Viviana Zelizer. My doctoral research focuses on how women, gender and sex are depicted in Hollywood romantic comedies, and is being supervised by Professor Jane Mills.
