Research interests

My main research interests are in 19th and 20th century continental philosophy, critical theory, philosophy of time, body theory, gender and sexuality studies, humanism, posthumanism, antihumanism, materialisms, narratives of disobedience and deviance.

I'm interested in relations and conflicts between normativity and various forms of individual, social, legal, corporeal disobedience.


Would consider PhD students interested in related topics.
