I joined the Department of Philosophy at HKU in 2001, after spending several years completing a PhD and teaching in Australia. Originally from Ireland, where I did my BA at UCD, I also spent some years in Paris doing an MA at the University of Paris X, and researching at the Foucault Archives (now at IMEC in Caen).

My major research interests are in
the fields of ethics, politics, and the philosophy of literature and art, with a particular focus on 20th century European philosophy. I have published extensively on the work of Michel Foucault. In recent years I have published in the area of the philosophy of literature, especially in relation to the works of modern and contemporary Irish writers.
