I’m an independent researcher specializing in transnational and transcultural media and fandoms. My scholarly writing can be found in Fandom: Identities and Communities in a Mediated World, Second Edition, A Companion to Media Fandom and Fan Studies, The Routledge Companion to Media Fandom, Transatlantic Television Drama, and Becoming: Genre, Queerness, and Transformation in NBC’s Hannibal, among others. I’ve also published in Participations, Transformative Works and Cultures, East Asian Journal of Popular Culture, and I have an essay forthcoming in Mechademia: Second Arc. I lived in Hong Kong for a total of seven years, Japan for nine years, and now live in Northern Virginia. In addition to doing research, I’m a lapsed fanfiction writer, vidder/videographic critic, mother of two, and annoyingly evangelical fan of the TV series Hannibal.
