He studied under the French philosopher Jacques Derrida, the founder of deconstruction. Raj teaches courses that focus on critical race theory, gender and sexuality studies, and intersectionality in domestic and global contexts. His research is on comparative contexts of social exclusion, marginalization, and oppression of racial, ethnic, gender, sexuality minorities and people with disabilities in cross-cultural contexts and theories and practices to promote human rights platforms and advance social justice.
