Kesavan is currently pursuing a (second) doctoral degree in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Notre Dame where he works mainly in moral epistemology, normative ethics, and social and political philosophy, dabbling in logic, philosophy of mathematics, and (social) epistemology and (social) metaphysics from time to time. Prior to his time in ND, Kesavan had spent several years as a graduate student in the UK obtaining his MSc in Mathematical Sciences (Distinction) from the University of Durham, his MA in Philosophy, specialising in Logic and Philosophy of Mathematics (Distinction) from the University of Bristol, and his DPhil in Mathematics from the University of Oxford. Most recently, he had also completed his MA in Philosophy at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada.

Beyond academia, Kesavan can frequently be found in a gym working out, on the tracks sprinting, or picking up a new sport to keep himself active -- whenever he's not sleeping, that is. His recent forays include archery, fencing, and jiu-jitsu. He also occasionally contributes op-eds to independent news organisations back in Singapore where he is originally from.
