About Me

I am a Ph.D. candidate in the philosophy department at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. My primary research interests are in metaphysics and the philosophy of religion. I also have interests in ethics, Indian philosophy, and Chinese philosophy. 


In metaphysics, I am especially interested in puzzles about ordinary objects and sortal changes in ordinary objects, which is the subject of my dissertation. 


In the philosophy of religion, I am especially interested in the problem of evil and in metaphysical issues in philosophical theology. 


While many philosophers are cat lovers, I am instead a hippo enthusiast.
