I am a philosopher of education who shuttles between London and Manila. I am interested broadly in the intersection between education and political thought, particularly anticolonial/decolonial/postcolonial political thought. My current research projects are on education for reparation, climate justice education, and the academic citizenship of marginalized academics. I am also currently involved in a number of philosophy and interdisciplinary research projects related to the concept of educational attunement, and critical social theory from a Philippine lens. My PhD project at the University College London was on teaching national identity in postcolonial contexts, under the supervision of Professor Paul Standish. 

Most of my teaching experience has been at Ateneo de Manila University, where I have taught on the AB Philosophy and MA Philosophy programmes for more than 20 years. I currently also teach the Experiential Learning course at New York University London, and in the summer terms, I teach on the Summer School at University College London. I have also previously worked as a senior lecturer, then an associate lecturer, of education at London Metropolitan University, and I have taught on the BA Education Studies programme at University College London.


I am a founding member of Women Doing Philosophy (in the Philippines), and I am currently on the editorial board of the journal Ethics and Education and of IMPACT. I was one of the founding producers of the podcast Conversations4Citizenship.

I hold a PhD in Philosophy of Education from the UCL Institute of Education, University College London, an MA in Citizenship Education (with distinction) from the Institute of Education, University of London, and MA and AB (cum laude) degrees in philosophy from Ateneo de Manila University.
