"A main cause of philosophical disease [is] a one-sided diet: one nourishes one's thinking with only one kind of example." Wittgenstein

Ph.D. SUNY Stony Brook

My research interests focus on the intersection of Epistemology and Social and Political Philosophy. In particular I am interested in questions of knowledge and identity in light of differences in social position. My work draws on feminist and critical race theorists, both analytic and continental. In addition I work on and in the spirit of the later Wittgenstein insofar as he sought to avoid both foundationalist and relativist tendencies in philosophizing.
