My expertise is in Twentieth Century Continental Philosophy, in particular feminist phenomenology, Merleau-Ponty, perception and phenomenological aesthetics.

I'm happy to serve on committees in the areas of feminist philosophy more broadly construed, ethics (in particular from a continental philosophy perspective or drawing to some extent on insights from that tradition), or any area of phenomenology. I'm also happy to serve on a committee that draws in some ways on my areas of expertise even if it is focused in another area such as philosophy of mind.
