In 2020, she was honored with the UCSD Dean’s Fellowship Prize for Humanistic Studies for her work on liminality and freelance writers working online.
Sengul-Jones has published academic, non-fiction, and fiction writing on a variety of topics including linked data, collective expertise, neurodivergence, and epistemic marginalization.
Her new work focuses on economies of endocrine disruption, the aftermath of chemicals, and intergenerational connections.
She uses allegory to mythologize how intersubjectivity can be a locus of collective healing.
Her debut novel, How to lose a promise, is at the intersection of social studies of science and feminist storytelling.
Sengul-Jones is a proud first-generation college graduate. She lives with her family in Seattle, WA, the traditional territories of the Coast Salish people.
