My main areas of research are phenomenology of the body (mainly Husserl and Merleau-Ponty), philosophy of mind, history of philosophy, philosophical methodology and philosophical gender studies.

My current research is focused on the basis of communality, as well as the dimensions of embodiment, such as movement, spatiality, mortality and gender. I have also written about the philosophy of artificial intelligence and been involved in developing the international field of feministic phenomenology.
