1st Year Graduate Student | M.A. program in Philosophy
My primary research interests so far revolve around Aristotelian philosophy, including his Metaphysics, epistemology presented in De Anima, and logic in The Categories, Prior and Posterior Analytics. While studying other philosophical frameworks, I try to compare and supplement them with those of Aristotle's, like if the conceptions of probability are something new to Aristotelian syllogism. My secondary interest concerns the philosophy of language, particularly the translation from daily linguistic and formal logic structures. As a Mahayana Buddhist, I studied East Asian Yogacara epistemology and Nagarjuna's Sunyata logic. I am intrigued by the former's similarities with Aristotelian perception theories and whether the latter suggest fundamentally different truth values from Aristotelian-Western logic.
Before Columbia, I finished my Bachelor's degree in Philosophy and Economics at the University of Pittsburgh.
