Biography

Originally from the Czech Republic, I obtained my M.A. (First Class Hons.) in Divinity & Philosophy from the University of Aberdeen and my M.Phil. (Distinction) in Theology & Religious Studies at the University of Cambridge.

Research

My current research seeks to establish the relevance of Bergson's philosophy to the analytic debate about the relation between eternity and time. My aim is to create a groundwork for a "Bergsonian" philosophy of religion.

From September 2018 to June 2019 I worked on Bergson at the École normale supérieure in Paris.

I was the lead organiser of the international conference "Reassessing Bergson", which took place at Pembroke College on 11-12th September 2019. This event was sponsored by the Faculty of Divinity, the Arts and Humanities Research Council, the British Society for the History of Philosophy, the Aristotelian Society, the Mind Association, and co-organised together with the Society for Philosophy of Time.

I am in charge of compiling the new Henri Bergson Bibliography as part of the Global Bergsonism project of the Société des amis de Bergson.
