Research

Speech for CU-Boulder Honors Journal, 2011

One of my primary focuses in higher education and student affairs is research and scholarship to provide empirical foundations for best practices, particularly for transgender college students. As a recent graduate student myself, I am just beginning to dive into what I foresee as a lifelong endeavor of social science research.

For other researchers and scholar-practitioners interested in furthering our knowledge on transgender students, please check out my #TransHESA initiative.

Current Projects

I am currently working on three projects: my thesis study about use of campus resources and support for gender transition, an article on LGBTQ digital campus climate at community colleges (with Dr. Jason Taylor and Kari Dockendorff), and a chapter on "fit" and trans professionals (with CJ Venable and Nick Thuot).
