My research has three different yet interconnected branches: social epistemology, global justice, and Indigenous philosophy. My focus on social epistemology informs my research towards issues such as group beliefs, groups identities, and the identification of political communities. This leads to my research into questions of global justice, under the framework of a global political community, which allows me to engage with broader questions about moral reasoning at a global scale and the limits of the current dominant Western paradigm. These limits become clearer when we start exploring Indigenous philosophy and the views of people commonly subjected to colonization, whose metaphysical and epistemological views have usually been excluded from conversations regarding epistemology, metaphysics, and moral reasoning. I am convinced that by acknowledging the existence of alternative and complementary epistemologies beyond the currently dominant Western views, new social and political options emerge. These new options can lead us to develop new policies that can help us address some of our most important challenges today. Challenges such as discrimination based on gender, race, ethnicity, or disabilities, as well as climate change, and growing economic inequality in the world might be better approached with a broader set of intellectual and conceptual tools under our belts.
