In 2023 I completed a PhD in Film Studies (Audio-Visual) at the University of Birmingham, England: ‘Inhuman, all too Inhuman: Lyotard, Nihilism and Film’. This research was practice-led and sought to develop Jean-François Lyotard’s thinking, namely his notions of the inhuman, acinemas and the libidinal in the realm of film through an audio-visual methodology. In turn, this research questioned the viability of film as a site of resistance against what Lyotard terms the inhuman, as well as its positioning in relation to the textual and film theory. Moreover, this work set out to examine audio-visual approaches for pedagogy, and in turn deterritorialise the boundaries of creative and artistic practice, philosophy and academic research. As well as film-philosophy, I have a particular interest in experimental cinema, the video-essay and the intersection of disability, queer and black film with genre and documentary cinema.

My video-essay ''Who Speaks?': Possessing Lyotard' was published in the [In] Transition (Journal of Videographic Film & Moving Image Studies, 10.2, 2023)  

In 2021, my video-essay 'Documentary as Genre of Fiction' was named as one of best video-essays by the BFI and was nominated for a Learning on Screen Award in 2022.

In 2015 I completed an M.A in Comparative Literature at Goldsmiths College, the University of London with a particular focus on the relationship between literature, art, aesthetics and problematics of representation in the work of Theodor Adorno, Walter Benjamin and Maurice Blanchot, culminating in my dissertation; 'Utopia in fragments: Art and Adorno's Negative Dialectics after Shoah' which explored Adorno's philosophy in relation to the work of Anselm Kiefer and Andrei Tarkovsky.
