AREAS OF INTEREST, EXPERTISE AND RESEARCH

Area of Interest

Twentieth-Century Continental Philosophy with an interest in the oeuvre of Jacques Derrida. Deconstruction, History of Western Philosophy, Existentialism, Philosophy of Language, Applied Ethics, Philosophy of Postmodernism are few of my competent areas. Themes in philosophy such as language, ethics, politics, gender, community, environment, development, social justice, technology, animality… are of interest to me.
