I am a Ph.D. candidate in the philosophy department at Rutgers University. While pursuing my doctorate in philosophy, I earned an M.S. from the Rutgers mathematics department.

My research focuses on issues in metaphysics, philosophy of science, and philosophy of physics. My dissertation is on explanation: I explore the worldly relations which back explanations, typicality explanations, and explanatory comparisons in mathematics.

In addition to philosophy, I like watching and making movies, reading and writing poems, and hiking.
