Biliana Popova

  I am originally from Bulgaria, but I spent my childhood years in Marrakech, Morocco. I obtained my first PhD in Philosophy at the University of Sofia “St. Kliment Ohridski” in 2019. My thesis examines the veridiction techniques in the politico-philosophical discourses of the Abbasid Caliphate and more concretely, in the politico-philosophical project of Abū Naṣr al Fārābī. I am currently working on the completion of my second PhD at the Educational Department at Lancaster University.

Research interests

Artificial Intelligence through the prism of Islamic Philosophy; Epistemology in Islam; Truth-telling (veridiction) techniques in Islam and other religions; Gender Construction from an Islamic Philosophy perspective; Commodification, Marketing and Internationalization of Higher Education.


Topics for Supervision

I would love to supervise projects dealing with the impacts of religions on societies and cultures, and projects dealing with classical or modern Islamic Philosophy.
