Research Interests
My general research interests lie at the intersection of the philosophy of language, science, and theoretical linguistics. Within this broad category, I am specifically interested in applied issues like linguistic injustice, cognitive dimensions of language and conceptual use. I have published a number of top-ranking journal articles in a number of peer-reviewed global journals in philosophy, linguistics, and cognitive science. I have also produced four separate book chapters on related issues.

My other interests lie in the domain of philosophical methodology especially with relation to the rise of African philosophy and political theory in the Global South. I have conducted research at the Interdisciplinary Center for Global Change in Minnesota working on these issues.

In the near future, I plan to produce a monograph on my broad interest and a number of shorter articles on my other interests.
