Hello! Originally Irish, I am a postdoctoral researcher and teacher in philosophy. My philosophy education was primarily at the Husserl Archives at KU Leuven in Belgium, where I obtained my PhD in 2016. I have a diverse range of philosophical interests, with expertise in phenomenology and existentialism, but also projects and publications more generally in philosophical anthropology and psychology, philosophy of technology and social philosophy, as well as environmental philosophy and ethics.
