I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Philosophy at McGill University. I am currently finishing my dissertation under the supervision of George di Giovanni and Hasana Sharp.
My current research interests lie in the metaphysics, epistemology, and theories of human existence to be found in German Idealism and 19th-century philosophy in general. My major concern is how Kant, his followers, and the later post-idealistic tradition construe the foundation and limits of rationality, rationality’s relationship to nature, and the role it plays in in the various dimensions of human experience, including the social, aesthetic, religious and broadly historical. My dissertation focuses on this constellation of problems in the context of Hegel’s conception of logic.
More broadly, I am interested in aesthetics, contemporary continental philosophy, psychoanalysis, and the philosophy of religion.
