Dr. Mudde works in feminist epistemologies and metaphysics, specializing in self-knowledge, subjectivity, and Simone de Beauvoir. That is probably why she is so interested in the physics and philosophy of glass mirrors. She is equally interested in scientific and everyday practices, and she thinks a lot about how to understand objectivity and responsibility.
