Research Interests:

My areas of specialization are Social and Political Philosophy, Gender Theory, and 20th Century Continental Philosophy.

My research interests lie principally with the themes of embodiment and violence. I recently completed my first book manuscript, entitled Violence and the Philosophical Imaginary (SUNY 2012), which examines the proliferation of images of violence in philosophical writing on embodiment and identity, particularly in the tradition of Continental feminist theory. Information on the book can be found here.
