Personal profile

Research

My main areas of interest are i) G.W.F. Hegel’s dialectical-speculative logic, ii) methodology and philosophy of science in the humanities and social sciences, and iii) feminist philosophy and political critique more broadly.

In my PhD project, I am concerned with the epistemological and political issue of problem articulation and the role played by ‘problems’ and ‘problematics’ in transdisciplinary knowledge production. More specifically, I draw on Hegel’s conception of the science of logic to explore how a dialectical notion of problem articulation may offer an apt model of critical methodology. By recourse to the early 20th century French Hegel-renaissance, I discuss the function and scope of concepts such as ‘concreteness’, ‘translation’ and ‘exemplarity’. As an example of the critical potential of this approach, I analyse Simone de Beauvoir’s development of the ‘woman problem’ in The Second Sex.

I did a MPhilStud in Modern European Philosophy at the CRMEP (Kingston University, London) and a BA in Philosophy from Université Paris-Sorbonne IV and the University of Copenhagen, as well as elementary training in classical languages (Greek and Latin).
