I am a graduate student, teacher and writer born, raised and living in New York City.
As a PhD student and teaching fellow at Fordham University, I work under the direction of Dr. Jennifer Anna Gosetti-Ferencei, My dissertation, «Singing the Body Electric: The Embodied Poetics of Merleau-Ponty», is an introduction to Maurice Merleau-Ponty's philosophy of literary language that makes extensive use of the recently published lecture notes from his 1953 Collège de France course Recherches sur l’usage littéraire du langage. I intend to complete my work by December 2015. As a Teaching Fellow, I teach the undergraduate courses Philosophy of Human Nature and Philosophical Ethics.
While my research focuses on the central movements and schools of 19th and 20th century Continental philosophy, my primary areas of interest include:
My interests have also led me to pursue studies in the fields of art history (esp. impressionism, post-impressionism and abstract expressionism), & literary studies (19th and 20th century American, European modernism and Holocaust literature).
Currently, I am also serving as a visiting instructor of American literature at Regis.
Every now and again, I take photographs of the world...
like the one to the left of Barcelona from June 2012.
