My teaching, research, and public engagement center on the relationship between values, bodies, and social praxis, especially as these relate to disability. How do our bodies and expectations about them shape experience, understanding, and judgment? How do historical injustices inform concepts of wellbeing and the practices and institutions we craft to facilitate it? My applied work in bioethics and medical humanities addressing such questions reinforces complementary projects in continental philosophy (esp. phenomenology), feminist philosophy (esp. care ethics), the history of philosophy, and philosophy of disability.
