In my academic work, I am interested in ways how philosophical methods can be employed for answering normative questions in the areas of development, knowledge integration, economy, and ecology. While I began my studies with a particular interest in philosophy of language and meta-ethics, I later focused primarily on political philosophy and American pragmatism.

In September 2020, I defended my doctoral thesis entitled Balancing Tradition and Development at Utrecht University, which I wrote under the supervision of Ingrid Robeyns. For my PhD project, I researched the role of cultural traditions within economic development processes with a particular focus on Indigenous peoples.

Currenty, I am a member of David Ludwig's GEOS Team at Wageningen University which forms part of the Knowledge, Technology & Innovation Group. In this project, I am examining the deep ontological differences between different Indigenous ontologies and the limits of ontological pluralism.
