I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Department of Philosophy at the University of Notre Dame. Before that, I was a graduate student at the same university where I worked under the supervision of Anjan Chakravartty.
In my research, I aim to develop an ontology compatible with the complex and pluralistic nature of scientific practice. My current research focuses on the nature of modal concepts such as dispositions, causal powers and laws of nature, and their role in science.
I also strive to be a socially conscious teacher, committed to educating reflective and morally responsible individuals.
