My research interests include postcolonial theory and practice, political philosophy, Lacanian psychoanalysis, the legacies of Georges Bataille and the work of Deleuze and Guattari. My current PhD research is concerned with the limits of revolutionary identity and the re-articulation of a fluid communal identity that would resist the essentialist pull of what I like to call a ‘fascistic structure.’ It is situated at the intersection of postcolonial theory and the work of Deleuze and Guattari.

Notable conference papers include: Fighting With Bataille: “Fight Club, Community and The Gift of Death” given at Film Philosophy Conference, September 2012; “From the cracks in history: the Zapatista mask as a missing link between history and decolonized identity” for Somatechnics International Conference: Missing Links: The Somatechnics of Decolonisation, June 2013; and  “Fanon and the Contest of Historiographies: the limits of strategic essentialism” for History, Postcolonialism and Tradition Conference, September 2013. I edited the Culture & Society editorial section for openDemocracy.
