I am a doctoral candidate in Sociology in the cooperative Research Training Group “Doing Transitions” of Goethe University Frankfurt am Main and Eberhard Karls University Tübingen, holding a fellowship by the German Research Foundation.

My Ph.D. project looks at Gender Transitions through the lens of  new materialism. Following theorist Susan Stryker, I understand gender transitions as non-linear movements across socially imposed boundaries, away from an unchosen starting place, the gender assigned at birth. Based on semi-structured interviews with people who transition, I seek to understand how gender transitions emerge with their human and nonhuman participants, and how these movements away from the gender assigned at birth are shaped by the given normative and discursive frames as well as material and institutional conditions.
