Biography

I am a DPhil candidate in the Department of Philosophy. I was born in Nicosia, Cyprus. After graduating from college, I served in the National Guard for 2 years. I then attended Old Dominion University (Virginia, U.S.A) where I studied philosophy and psychology. While studying towards my Bachelors degree I became particularly interested in continental philosophy, notably in the thought of Nietzsche, Heidegger and Derrida. After completing my BA I moved to Coventry (U.K.) where I studied for an MA in Continental Philosophy at The University of Warwick. During my study there, I took modules on Hegel under the instruction of Dr. Stephen Houlgate. That's when I got interested in the "problem of presuppositions", which I connect with Heidegger's focus on pre-reflective understanding. My MA dissertation topic was Nietzsche and Aesthetics, supervised by Dr. Keith-Ansell Pearson. After my MA I went back to Cyprus where I worked in commerce for two years. Then I went to Düsseldorf, Germany, where I studied German for four months. I returned to academia in January 2009 when I started working towards a DPhil at The University of Sussex. My research topic is Heidegger and Moods, supervised by Dr. Tanja Staehler.
