Research interests: metaphysics, history of analytic philosophy, philosophy of language

Dr. Perovic's main research and teaching interests lie in metaphysics, philosophy of the self, philosophy of mind, and the history of analytic philosophy. She has published on metaphysics of properties and relations, philosophy of time, and Russell. Her current research focuses on philosophy of time, persistence of the self through memory, and meta-metaphysical issues concerning what makes for a genuine metaphysical problem as opposed to a pseudo-problem.
