My research interests include nineteenth and twentieth-century philosophy and literature, narrative theory, ethics and politics. Specifically, my thesis research focuses on the uses of different narrative constructs in philosophical texts in the nineteenth and early twentieth-century, and the tension between representation and truth in the context of political freedom.
