His interests are divided between ancient philosophy (Socrates, Plato, scepticism), modern philosophy (Descartes, Hume, Kant, reception of scepticism), phenomenology (late Husserl, early Heidegger, Patocka) and contemporary stuff inspired mainly by John Searle (theory of institutions, philosophy of mind) and Ernst Tugendhat.

Before Berkeley, he was a visiting lecturer at King’s College, London.
