I am a Post-Doctoral Fellow in the Faculty of Philosophy at Sofia University.

In 2020 - 2022 I was a WIRL-COFUND Fellow in the Institute of Advanced Study and the Department of Philosophy at the University of Warwick. 

I hold a PhD in political science from Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona, 2019).

I also hold a Candidate of Philosophical Sciences degree in social philosophy from Lomonosov Moscow State University where I taught philosophy in 2004–2015.

My academic research focuses on theories of public reason. Currently I am working on a project titled Skeptical Liberalism — a version of political liberalism that provides the least morally and metaphysically demanding account of liberal democracy.
