About Me

I grew up in Southern California. After high school I went to Pasadena City College (PCC) where I studied philosophy and history. I was lucky enough to study abroad in Florence, Italy for a semester in 2010.

After PCC, I transferred to UC Berkeley where I majored in philosophy. My philosophical interests at the time were mostly in the history of philosophy (specifically, Greek and German Philosophy).

Once I finished at UC Berkeley, I did an MA in philosophy at Central European University, in Budapest. I wrote my thesis on Plato's Sophist.

In 2015 I began my PhD in philosophy at the City University of New York Graduate Center. I was very interested in the "Master Argument" by Diodorus Cronus, which I studied in a class on Modal Logic by M. Fitting and R. Mendelsohn. Since then, I have focussed on the history of philosophy, logic, and some specific issues in the philosophy of math.

In the Fall of 2018, I did a semester at the The Institute for the History and Philosophy of Science and Technology (IHPST) at Paris 1. Now, I am finishing up my thesis on theories of arithmetic extended with predicate-style modal features.

While not reading philosophy, I like to play chess. I founded the CUNY Philosophy Chess Club in 2017.
