Under the umbrella of Lovecraft she currently works on atmospheric escape and extracorporeal bodies. She is interested in the non/human languages of desires caused by the gravitational ripples and their molecular affinities and agencies. New work calls for questioning manifest notions of corporeality, allowing differentiated perspectives on desires between physical and non-human entities. It is invested in creating systems in which new libidinal orders, toxic inverts and techno-queer microbes can affirm the present and future as joint temporalities.
