Chloé Locatelli is a Ph.D. researcher and teaching assistant in the Digital Humanities department at King’s College London. Her research explores gendered-female embodiment in emergent sex tech products and the consumption of intimacy through them.
Having completed an international master’s in Gender Studies at the Universidad de Granada and Università di Bologna, Chloé now continues her academic and journalistic research with a posthuman and feminist lens. Her academic research has been published in books and journals alike.
In 2020, she co-wrote a chapter with Dr. Kate Devlin titled "Guys and Dolls: Sex Robot Creators and Consumers"
for the Springer Gabler publication Maschinenliebe.
It featured sexual companion robots, the companies that make them, and doll owners interested in buying.
Her abstract "Theorising Artificial Femininities in Sex-Tech: Previous Postulations and Future Directions" was also published in the academic conference book for PLOTINA: Regendering Science.
