My work centers on questions of perception, experience, judgment, knowledge, and normativity, especially in relation to social and political issues. My primary historical areas of interest are in Hegel, neo-Hegelian lines of thought, Frankfurt School Critical Theory, and psychoanalysis. Some of my topical areas of interest include philosophy of mind, epistemology, philosophy of race, and decolonial theory. My most current research interest focuses on thinking through the notion of collective self-deception and the difficulty of formulating a method of adjudication amongst conflicting forms of life, especially through a Hegelian and neo-Hegelian framework. In addition, I am interested in thinking through the implications of such an account of collective self-deception in relation to questions of responsibility.
