Research summary
As a student in Philosophy-Neuroscience-Psychology and Women, Gender, and Sexuality studies, I work on debates within social, political, and feminist philosophy, as well as the philosophy of art. My dissertation focuses on the social ontology or metaphysics of human sex categories and their use in clinical contexts. I advance recent constructionist arguments against binary sex essentialism and, using their implications, develop systematic clinical guidelines hoping to improve current standards of care.
