Academic Interests

I work on Heidegger and aesthetics, primarily as the two relate to Post-Kantian philosophy. I am interested in phenomenology and Continental philosophy in general and I am interested in modernism as a philosophical and artistic problem. I am also interested in the relation between situation and personal identity in ethics, and find phenomenology, feminist thought and Aristotle all to be very helpful in thinking about this relationship. 

You can find out more about my work here:


I teach FIL 2505/4532: Continental Philosophy, focusing on phenomenology, in fall 2015 and in spring 2016 FIL 4700/2104: Philosophical Aesthetics, where we will read Hegel's aesthetics in conversation with more recent work in the philosophy of art.
I also lecture for Ex.Phil. and our new department-wide Ex.Fac.
