I 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 questions concerning 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.
When I'm not doing philosophy, I'm taking photographs, biking, or at the park with my dog.
