Research summary

My interests lie in epistemology, classical Indian philosophy in Sanskrit, and moral philosophy. My current work in epistemology focuses on knowledge, rational defeat, externalist conceptions of evidence, and norms of evidence management. My work on classical Indian philosophy primarily focuses on texts that belong to the Nyāya tradition.


I am a lecturer in the Department of Philosophy at University College London. Before coming to London, I completed a PhD at MIT, was a post-doctoral fellow at UNC Chapel Hill, and taught at NYU Shanghai.
