I am currently a postgraduate researcher, in the midst of my full-time year of Master's degree by research.

Research interests

In my thesis, I assess the relevance of science-fiction films - and in particular, the sub-genre which introduces encounters with nonhuman beings - for a re-examination of Albert Camus’ philosophy of the absurd. To establish such a connection, I analyze four films of this sub-genre as sources which could illuminate aspects of the absurd and possible responses to it.
