My research interests lie in the intersection between modern intellectual history, philosophy of history, and cultural criticism. My current project, “All is One: Holistic Knowledge Ideals and Controversies from Fin de siècle to the Anthropocene,” investigates the relationship between knowledge, ideology, and spirituality.

My thesis, Two Quests for Unity (2021), is a study of John Dewey's and R. G. Collingwood's thought in relation to philosophical idealism and political liberalism. Previously, I have studied various cultural sciences and have written bachelor's dissertations in philosophy and comparative literature covering issues on identity, narration, trauma, memory, and the relationship between historiography and fiction.

My teaching experience includes supervising, the history of liberalism, Dewey and the history of pedagogy, Freud and the history of psychoanalysis, Foucault and French anti-humanism, dystopianism, and the transnational history of the Haitian Revolution.
