  • Graduate Student

I am primarily interested in philosophy of science, philosophy of mind and cognitive science, and epistemology. Recently, I’ve been thinking about the role of models and mathematics in psychological science, the ubiquity of scientific explanations in all domains of reasoning, nature of concepts and conceptual change, and the limits of relying on framework-based knowledge in psychology.  

I am also interested in the history of philosophy (esp. early modern philosophy and logical positivism), philosophy of technology, critical theory, metaethics, and philosophy of medicine. Quite honestly, I am interested in almost anything there is to be interested in.

I grew up in New Delhi, India. Before coming to Pitt, I completed a B.A. in Philosophy, and, Psychology, Neuroscience & Behaviour at McMaster University and an M.A. in Philosophy at Western University. I also spent a semester studying at Heidelberg University, Germany and worked with a psychology research group at the University of Waterloo.
