Research interests

My main research interests are in the field of philosophy of time, continental philosophy, Deleuze, Nietzsche, Heidegger, critical theory, body theory, gender and sexuality, humanism, posthumanism, antihumanism, materialisms, narratives of deviance. So far my work has followed two different but related paths: transgender subjectivities and their challenging relations with normativity and space, and the investigation of the temporality of utopia. I'm currently working on two projects: the first is a research around the ethics and rethorics of monstrosity, the second is a critical and theoretical analysis of the temporality and ethics of hope.


Would consider PhD students interested in any of the above.
