Tea Lobo holds an MA degree from the University of Basel. She studied Philosophy and English Literature at the University of Basel, the University of Fribourg and the University of Harvard. She has received a grant from the Swiss National Science Foundation for a transdisciplinary PhD project at the University of Fribourg. She is an associated researcher at the University of Basel, at the Doktoratsprogramm Literaturwissenschaften.

In her PhD thesis, she is investigating Ludwig Wittgenstein’s life-long fascination with Fyodor Dostoevsky’s novels (documented mostly in his journals) and both writers’ ideas on the relations between language, ethics and aesthetics, as well as how these ideas are aesthetically presented in their works.
