Her next project is a book entitled “Aristotle on Justice as a Personal Virtue: Self-Love, Friendship and Equality”.

Her research focuses on topics related to moral psychology, theory of emotions, ethics and political thought in Plato, Aristotle, and the Cynics, and she is also interested in contemporary ethics, emotion theory, action theory, social epistemology, and political philosophy.
