Welcome to my Humanities Commons web page. I'm currently an Irish Research Council Government of Ireland Postgraduate Scholar in the University College Dublin School of Philosophy.

My research falls within the tradition of critical disability studies, while also incorporating twentieth-century continental philosophy, philosophy of biology, and philosophy of technology. It examines how practices that situate impairment—and the body more generally—as a brute natural objectivity are involved in the production of the organising concept of 'the human', including specification of what are taken for essential human characteristics.

As it stands, this website is simply a place where I will share some unpolished drafts from conference and workshop presentations. It will be updated more frequently during the coming months.

You can contact me here.
