FullSizeRenderI am Tracy Llanera and I am a Filipino philosopher.

I am an Assistant Research Professor at the Department of Philosophy, University of Connecticut. My research interests lie at the intersection of social and political philosophy, philosophy of religion, social epistemology and pragmatism. I am currently working on two interrelated projects: a project on conversion and a project on nihilism.

I was a Visiting Research Fellow at the School of Politics, Philosophy, International Relations and Environment at Keele University, United Kingdom (Spring 2018). I was also a Research Fellow at the University of Connecticut Humanities Institute (Humility & Conviction in Public Life), United States last Fall 2017. I have taught graduate and undegraduate courses at the University of Connecticut (United States), Macquarie University (Australia), and the University of Santo Tomas (Philippines).

My Ph.D. in Philosophy was awarded by Macquarie University in 2016.
