After finishing my undergraduate in Philosophy and Mathematics at the University of Kentucky, I joined the Philosophy Department here in 2021. My interests, broadly speaking, are in the realm of philosophy of science and neighboring areas. In particular, I like to think about (i) how and why mathematics is used in physical theory, (ii) what it means when physical theory goes past our worldly experiences, and (iii) the relationship between science and society, including but not limited to feminist/antiracist/queer critiques of science and the relation between science and public policy.

In my free time, I still enjoy reading, somehow still more philosophy of science. But I also hypothetically enjoy cats. My pronouns are he/him/his.
