belmonte-pic-1Kimberly Belmonte is a doctoral student in the Critical Social/Personality Psychology program at the Graduate Center, CUNY. Her research examines the implications of heteronormative surveillance across a range of contexts: from women’s lived experiences with sexuality, desire, and identity to young people’s experience with school safety and policing. As a researcher with the Public Science Project, she has engaged in community-focused participatory research on projects related to LGBTQ young people’s experience with school safety/discipline and young people of color’s experience with police surveillance in New York City. In addition to her more traditional scholarly work, she writes a research blog for SPARK, translating scholarly articles on objectification and sexualization into a format that the average adolescent can understand and access.
