am Assistant Professor of Philosophy and JY Pillay Fellow in the Humanities Division of Yale-NUS College, Singapore, with a joint courtesy appointment in the Department of Philosophy, National University of Singapore.
I defended my dissertation in the philosophy department at the University of Texas at Austin in November 2014 under the supervision of Stephen Phillips. I earned my master's degree in philosophy at the University of Missouri - St. Louis.
I'm interested in language, meaning, and knowledge. My research employs historical philosophy in the service of philosophy as a whole. More specifically, my work engages with the classical Indian philosophical tradition as well as contemporary Anglophone (analytic) philosophy of language.
This semester I'm teaching Philosophy and Political Thought 1 and Introduction to Classical Indian Philosophy.
I gave several talks this summer related to my current project investigating ellipsis in Mīmāṃsā philosophy of language:
