Welcome to my site. I lecture and research in French Studies at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia. My main research interests are in contemporary French philosophy, with a focus on atheism, theology, ecology, (post)humanism and the New Materialisms. I have recently finished a book on the figure of the human being in contemporary French thought (Badiou, Meillassoux, Malabou, Serres, Latour), and am currently writing the first comprehensive critical introduction to the thought of Michel Serres. At the moment, I am particularly interested to hear from graduate students who want to work on aspects of Serres’s thought.
I edit the international Crosscurrents monograph series for Edinburgh University Press.
I took my undergraduate degree at the University of Cambridge (Jesus College), before taking up a Junior Research Fellowship (Magdalene College) and then a two-year university lectureship in French (Murray Edwards College), arriving in Melbourne in 2011.
Key research interests: Michel Serres, Bruno Latour, Catherine Malabou, Jean-Luc Nancy, Quentin Meillassoux, Paul Ricoeur, New Materialism, Theology, Ecology, Humanism, Posthumanity.
