I am a PhD student in Philosophy of Science at University College London.
My main interests lie general philosophy of science, philosophy of biology, epistemology. In addition, I am also interested in metaphysics, Plato, and history of science.
The provisional title of my PhD thesis is "Exemplarising Science: A Case Study of Classical Genetics". I aim to propose and defend an exemplar-centric account of classical genetics as a case against the theory-centric view of science.
I am also a Postgraduate Teaching Assistant in the Department of Science and Technology Studies, University College London. In the 2013-2014 academic year, I am tutoring the course Philosophy of Science 1 (HPSC1003).
