My research is about, as well as located in, the intersections of German critical theory (Hegel, Marx and the Frankfurt School), decolonial thought, Latin American political thought, democratic theory and theories of capitalism and colonialism in the history of political thought. In a broader sense, my interests span to black political thought, political theology, political ecology and theories of science and politics. I have researched the latter in the political theories of Herbert Marcuse and Bruno Latour.
