PhD, Rutgers University

Rafael was educated at Rutgers University – New Brunswick and at Northwestern University. His work focuses on Latin American and Caribbean philosophy, especially decolonial thought, and on theories of secularization and postsecularity.

He is currently revising a manuscript tentatively titled Decolonizing the Postsecular that rethinks the modern dialectics of secularization from the perspective of Latin America and the Caribbean. He is also editing a special issue of The CLR James Journal that explores the relevance of spirituality to decolonization.

His publications appear in the anthology Decolonising the University, and the journals, Radical Philosophy Review, The CLR James Journal, and Political Theology.

He is a member of the Coordinating Collective of the Latin American Philosophy of Education Society, and of the Editorial Collective of its journal Lápiz.
