Biography

Areas of research expertise include: 20thC European philosophy and existential phenomenology (especially Merleau-Ponty, Arendt, Levinas, Derrida, Nancy, Foucault), Nietzsche’s philosophy, and feminist philosophy of the body. My published research applies concepts from these fields to develop ideas of political community, generosity, and responsibility, and to address ethical and political issues especially with regard to biopolitics.
