Hanne Jacobs is Director of Graduate Studies and an Associate Professor of Philosophy at Loyola University Chicago. She earned her PhD from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven in 2009 with a dissertation on Husserl and Leibniz. While in Leuven, she was a member of the research center of the Husserl-Archives. She is the editor of a series of Husserl's lecture courses on the history of philosophy published in the Husserliana Materialien series: Einleitung in die Philosophie 1919/20 (HuMa IX). She also recently co-edited a book for the Phaenomenologica series titled: Philosophy, Phenomenology, Sciences: Essays in Commemoration of Edmund Husserl.

Her teaching and research interests include the fields of twentieth-century European philosophy, phenomenology, early modern philosophy, and questions concerning personhood and self. She is currently working on a book on Husserl’s phenomenology of self-constitution.
