I am a Ph.D. candidate in the department of philosophy at Rutgers University, New Brunswick. I am also pursuing a M.Sc. in mathematics and a graduate certificate in cognitive science.
My primary research interests are in philosophy of physics, philosophy of science, and metaphysics. I also have interests in decision theory, formal epistemology, philosophy of mathematics, philosophy of religion, and Chinese philosophy.
On this website, you can find my CV as well as information about my research, teaching, talks, and some of the events I organized.
Check out my new paper on time's arrow in a quantum universe.
Outside philosophy, I enjoy traveling, skiing, and swimming. I also have a side interest in using films to popularize philosophical and scientific ideas. Currently I'm co-writing a sci-fi film script on time travels in closed time-like curves (based on some ideas from this SEP article).
