I received my undergraduate degree from Hampshire College in 1994 and completed my Ph.D. at the State University of New York at Binghamton in 2001, with a dissertation titled "The Production of Subjectivity: Marx and Contemporary Continental Thought."

My areas of interest in philosophy include social and political philosophy, continental philosophy, philosophy of history, feminist philosophy, and philosophical anthropology.

I am a member of the American Philosophical Association, the North America Spinoza Society, the Society for Social and Political Philosophy: Continental, Feminist, and Historical Perspectives (which I helped to found), and the Society for Phenomenology and Existential Philosophy (when I remember to pay my dues). My favorite philosopher is Spinoza, but it is a close call and there are many runners up.
