Alexandra (Alex) Higgins is a PhD student in the Department of Political Science. She grew up in and around Baltimore, MD, and got her BA from the Ohio University Honors Tutorial College in 2015.

Her research interests are in the political economy of the internet, transgender politics and activism, and feminist theory. Currently, she teaches Quantitative Methods. When she isn't grading problem sets or working on her dissertation, she likes to make computer games, showcase them at local festivals, and make tiny incremental updates to her perpetually “under construction” personal website.
