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 in modernism as a philosophical and artistic problem. 

I have advised MA students working on a wide range of topics, including theses on  Kirkegaard and the self, Social philosophy and narrative theories of identity, Philosophy of technology, Philosophy of work, Heidegger and Hegel, Phenomenology, Romanticism and Indian philosophy. 


I teach our our courses in Continental Philosophy, Aesthetics, Feminist Philosophy and lecture for Exphil on a regular basis. Courses thought:

Continental philosophy (MA)

Continental philosophy (BA)

Philosophical aesthetics (joint MA and BA)

Feminist philosophy (BA, joint BA and MA from 2022)

Higher education and employment history
