Kort presentation

Detta stycke finns inte på svenska, därför visas den engelska versionen.

I am a postdoctoral Marie Curie Fellow, with a main interest in phenomenology and embodied approaches to religion. In my research I strive to bring together the best of both analytic and continental philosophic traditions. In addition, I am very interested in sciences and use the data of cognitive science of religion in philosophical investigations. My current project "Bridging Belief and Practice" is aimed at bridging the gap between theoretical and empirical studies of religion.

Nyckelord: phenomenology philosophy of religion embodied approaches religious studies cognitive science of religion

Biografi

Detta stycke finns inte på svenska, därför visas den engelska versionen.

I defended my PhD at Uppsala University, and since then worked in Sweden and in the UK (University of Birmingham, University of Leeds). My background is interdisciplinary, it comprises degrees in Oriental Studies, Religious Studies and Philosophy of Religion.

Forskning

My research interest lay in the following areas:

  • Phenomenology
  • Philosophy of religion
  • Science and Religion

My current 2-year research project "Bridging Belief and Practice" is funded by EU. It aims to bridge the gap between theoretical and empirical studies of religion, which up till now developed separately, as the studies of beliefs and the studies of practices. This will be done by means of elucidating the properties of beliefs and their relation to human embodied religious practices. I decided to take the best of empirical investigations (phenomenology and the most prominent results of religious studies) and the best of theoretical investigation (analytic philosophy) and make a conceptual work to bridge them.
