I am Felix. I am a PhD student at Lancaster University (you can see my research profile here) researching weight and shape control in relation to trans, non-binary and non-conforming experiences of gender.
This project developed out of a Masters thesis, which can be found here. A shorter and less jargon-heavy summary of the ideas in the thesis can be found on the blog for this research project.
Alongside this research I teach, deliver trainings, and involve myself in community-based healthcare work as much as I can, sometimes by fundraising, sometimes doing background work.
The drive to do this study comes from the wish to see the experiences of trans, non-binary and gender non-conforming people - especially in our relationships with our bodies - explored and researched with depth and complexity.
Feel free to get in touch to talk about the research or to send any questions or queries my way
