I am an Advanced Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the Department of Classics and Philosophy at the University of Cyprus. My research focuses on the History of Analytic Philosophy and its different relations to the broader context of the History of Philosophy in the Twentieth Century (including the various traditions sometimes bundled under the heading of ‘Continental’ Philosophy, e.g. Phenomenology or Critical Theory). A number of my publications explore the purported divide between Analytic and Continental Philosophy, including the monograph titled Encounters between Analytic and Continental Philosophy (Palgrave, 2013). I am also interested in, and write about, Aesthetics and the Philosophy of Art.

I received my PhD in Philosophy from Birkbeck, University of London in 2011, after which I held an Honourary Fellowship at Birkbeck between 2011-2012. Since 2010 I have taught at the University of Cyprus, as well as the Cyprus University of Technology and the European University of Cyprus. My current research project (2019-) is titled ‘Logical Positivism and the divide between Analytic and Continental philosophy’; as the title suggests, the project investigates the interactions between the Vienna Circle and other philosophical schools and traditions (primarily during the interwar).
