Research: 

My research has focused on figures in 19th century German philosophy, specifically, Hegel, Marx, and Nietzsche. I'm particularly interested in how each of them diagnoses and attempts to provide a solution to certain philosophical problems that manifest themselves on the social or cultural level--Nietzsche, for instance, is concerned with the problem of nihilism, and Hegel with freedom and recognition. I'm also interested in Nietzsche's method of genealogy and how it might serve as a tool for social critique. Going hand-in-hand with my research on these 19th Century figures is an abiding interest in the Frankfurt School.
