My research in a nutshell

In my research, I focus on the history of metaphysics, epistemology, and the philosophy of mind in the Islamic world. I have written on the critical adaptation of ancient philosophical theories in the Arabic intellectual tradition, Islamic philosophical theology (kalām), and post-classical Islamic philosophy. I am also interested in contemporary metaphysics and epistemology.


I received my BA in Byzantine and Mondern Greek Studies from the University of St Peterburg in 2011 and my MA in Islamic Studies from the University of Tübingen in 2013. I completed my PhD in Philosophy at the LMU Munich in 2016 under the supervision of Prof Peter Adamson. Before I joined the University of Edinburgh, I worked at the LMU in the DFG-funded research project “The Heirs of Avicenna: Philosophy in the Islamic East from the 12th to the 13th Century."
