Research and Teaching
While Heidi's background is in the history of philosophy, her research interests are predominantly in 20th- and 21st-century philosophy, including classical phenomenology in the Husserlian vein, embodied cognition, and more recent French thinkers including Michel Foucault and Gilles Deleuze.  

She is currently writing her dissertation entitled "Out of Joint: The Nexus of Madness and Time-Consciousness." The aim of her project is to provide a Foucaultian analysis and critique of the overlap of time-consciousness and madness in the modern era. 

Her favorite course to teach, oddly enough, is logic.
