About Me

I am currently a PhD student at the Australian National University in Interdisciplinary and Cross-Cultural Research in the Humanities Research Center. My research involves representations of girls in museum in art and history exhibitions and collections.

I also founded Girl Museum- the first and only museum in the world dedicated to the celebration of girlhood. We research and produce exhibition about girl culture and history.
