Current Research and projects

I am currently working on two major research projects.

The first is a series of books on the philosophy of movement. So far in the series I have published The Figure of the Migrant with Stanford University Press and Theory of the Border with Oxford. Lucretius: An Ontology of Motion is forthcoming in early 2018 with Edinburgh University Press. Many more books are planned for the series and are in various stages of completion.   

The second is an NEH funded transcription and translation project to publish the seminars of Gilles Deleuze's audio course lectures in collaboration with Purdue University and the Université de Paris VIII at La Voix de Deleuze.

For more information on these projects, visit our website, Between Deleuze and Foucault.

Professional biography

My recent work applies the philosophy of movement to a number of domains of study including politics, ontology, art, aesthetics, science,technology, and mathematics. My methodology is motivated by pressing contemporary concerns but also deeply rooted in historical and empirical research.
