Bio: 

My research mainly concerns German critical theory (Hegel, Marx and the Frankfurt School), decolonial thought, Latin American political thought (mainly Marxist and anti-colonial), critical democratic theory and political ecology. I have also researched issues concerning the relation between science and politics, and scientific-political language in the political theories of Herbert Marcuse and Bruno Latour.
