Jamie O’Quinn is a third year PhD student in the Department of Sociology at the University of Texas at Austin. She received her master's degree in Sexuality Studies from San Francisco State University in 2016. For her M.A. thesis, Jamie conducted a queer analysis of an LGBTQ-inclusive sexaulity education curriculum, understanding how progressive visions of sexuality education envision young people's sexual futures.

Jamie’s dissertation research analyzes statutory rape and child marriage laws, exploring the ways in which state efforts to regulate young people’s sexualities are gendered and racialized.
