1st Year Graduate Student | M.A. Program in Philosophy
I am most excited by questions that fall largely within the philosophies of language and mind and metaphysics. I am especially interested in the ontological commitments of ordinary and folk-theoretic languages, as well as how these commitments affect our ability to form coherent pictures of the world (both normatively and descriptively). Related questions about how coherent our understanding of the world can hope to be in the first place, what paradoxes in the philosophy of language can tell us about limitations on philosophizing in general, and what sort of thing a worldview is, are also of particular interest to me.
Before joining the philosophy department at Columbia, I graduated from NYU with a B.A. in Philosophy and a minor in Linguistics.
