At the Akaroa Bay, South Island, New Zealand

Hello! I am a Philosopher of Science and a PhD Candidate in Mathematics and Philosophy at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand.

I will be a Visiting Research Student at the Centre for Philosophy of Natural and Social Sciences (CPNSS) at the London School of Economics (LSE) and the Department of History and Philosophy of Science (HPS) at the University of Cambridge in Fall-Spring 2021-22.

I work on modal metaphysics, analogical reasoning, and unification arguments in Philosophy of Science. In particular, I investigate three broad ways in which mathematical models and explanations can unify disparate physical phenomena:

(a) unification via non-causal distinctively mathematical explanations,

(b) unification via analogical models, and

(c) unification with partial structures approach.

I like approaching these issues by looking into scientific case studies from a largely mathematical standpoint.

I am also interested in Buddhist philosophy (as applied to mathematical realism), Indian Astronomical traditions, and their parallels with modern Philosophy.
