Research Interests

My primary area of interest is phenomenology, especially Merleau-Ponty’s work on perception. I am also interested in other Post-Kantian European figures, philosophy of perception more broadly, and feminist philosophy. I am currently working on a dissertation concerning whether Merleau-Ponty’s theory of perception can be considered a “realist” one. I am interested in what that unique variety of realism would look like, and what consequences it might have for enactivist theories of perception and for feminist epistemology.
