I am a PhD candidat
e at the University of Toronto. I am writing my dissertation on Kant's metaphysics and epistemology of ground, under the supervision of Nick Stang. In my dissertation, I trace a line of thought about the relation between the epistemology and the metaphysics of ground from Wolff to Kant, and argue that this can help us better understand Kant's thinking in the Critique of Pure Reason.

In contemporary philosophy, my main research interests are in metaphysics, especially on the various notions of dependence, and how they relate to one another. I am also very interested in anything that can be broadly construed as M&E.

In the history of philosophy, my main research interests are in the German philosophical tradition from Leibniz to Kant (including both). I also am generally interested in both early modern rationalism and post-Kantian German Idealism.
