She is on the Editorial Board of the journal Interacting with Computers.

Recent work has focused on exploring the intersections between HCI’s rising interest in social change and feminist social science, critical design, sexual and intimate interactions, and the application of critical and cultural theories for developing concept-driven design strategies.
