Adele is an independent scholar, writer and activist on feminism, gender, culture, religion, Tibetan Buddhism and human rights. She has written Opinion pieces and poems that have been published in Phayul.com, The Huffington Post, Tibet Telegraph, Tibet Sun, Elephant Journal and The Feminist Wire. Her work challenges mainstream, accepted views on both the Left and Right, particularly where it supports and strengthens identity politics, political correctness, the 'racism of lower expectations' and cultural relativism.
She has an MA in Philosophy (King's College, London) and an LL.B in Law. She has worked as an analyst and strategist for a Big Five Consulting Firm and the BBC and is a qualified barrister. During her time as a postgraduate student, she co-edited and contributed to a philosophy book Aesthetic Experience (Routledge, 2007) with Prof. Richard Shusterman. Since 2006, after visiting India and coming into contact for the first time with Tibetan Buddhism, she progressed beyond her interest in western philosophy and has spent the last few years commuting between London, UK and India and Nepal to work, live and study the Tibetan Language and Buddhist philosophy in the Tibetan community in exile. She is also a mother to a young son and currently working on a scholarly translation and critical edition of a Tibetan Buddhist text.
