Personal profile

Research interests

My main area of specialisation is the history of philosophy, with a particular focus on women philosophers of the early modern period (c. 1650-1750).

I am currently engaged in two ARC-funded projects:

  • a Discovery Project on the philosophical foundations of women's rights (1600-1750), with D. Brown and M. Deslauriers (project no. DP190100019, $165,000);
  • a Discovery Project on women and liberty in the early modern and enlightenment periods, with K. Green and K. Detlefsen (DP140100109, $190,000).

I also recently completed a Future Fellowship project on the seventeenth-century feminist philosopher Mary Astell (project no. FT0991199, $541,000, 2010-16).
