Research

I work on imagination, philosophy of mind, aesthetics, phenomenology, and feminist philosophy.

I'm developing a comprehensive way of thinking about imaginative experiences, taking phenomenological descriptions and thoughts about their capacities as explananda. Since I'm interested in imagination, I'm interested in philosophy of mind, particularly questions of content, representation, and intentionality.

In aesthetics, I work on issues where imagination and aesthetics overlap; for example, the ontology of artworks and the role of imagination in literature.  I also work in natural and environmental aesthetics, and on a range of topics including dance music, film, and aesthetic experience.

Phenomenology and feminist philosophy are methodological themes as much as research projects, but I have nascent papers in both fields.
