Delícia is a Philosophy doctoral candidate at Stony Brook University and is completing her dissertation in Germany. Her research focuses on the overlap between the ongoing evolvement of human reasoning (according to Hegel’s system) and our abilities and methods of working through contradictions in modern science. During her tenure as a Ph.D. student, Delícia co-founded the international Society for Phenomenological and the Philosophy of Science and co-organized and co-hosted the annual Phenomenological Approaches to Physics Conference. She is also a member and regular presenter at the bi-annual Gathering for Gardner conference.
Prior to re-entering school for her Ph.D., Delícia was at various times an instructional designer and corporate communications architect for several Fortune 500 companies, as well as local, State and Federal branches of the U.S. government. In addition to holding two Master’s Degrees: one in Philosophy and the other in Broadcast and Electronic Communications, Delícia is a former Fulbright scholar (Germany, 2021-2022) and served as a U.S. Peace Corps Volunteer and UNICEF liaison from 1993 to 1995 in the Cape Verde Islands.
Delícia joined THE NEW INSTITUTE to help develop and support research and projects that enhance human development and the human condition. She previously served as program manager for The Human Condition in the 21st Century and is currently the program coordinator for Black Feminism and the Polycrisis.
