Associate Professor of Philosophy
Focus of Dissertation and Advisor
I defended my dissertation - entitled "Rhythms of the Body: A Study of Sensation, Time and Intercorporeity in the Phenomenology of Edmund Husserl" - at Emory in 2002. The dissertation was written under the supervision of Professor David Carr. In it, I argued that the accounts of sensation found in Husserl's works can provide the grounds for a rhythmic and dynamic theory of the lived body.
My current research is in phenomenology and twentieth century French philosophy, and extends from Henri Bergson, Edmund Husserl and Maurice Merleau-Ponty to contemporary thinkers such as Gilles Deleuze and Luce Irigaray.
I have recently published an article on the question of memory in Bergson and Deleuze (" The Memory of Another Past: Bergson, Deleuze and a new theory of time " in Continental Philosophy Review).
