I am an Assistant Teaching Professor and Assistant Undergraduate Director in the Department of Philosophy at Rutgers University, New Brunswick.
Most of my research focuses on the following four topics: (i) non-causal explanation in metaphysics and the sciences, (ii) the metaphysics, epistemology, and logic of identity, essence, and individuation, (iii) the nature of existence, and (iv) logical and metaphysical issues in classical Hindu and Buddhist thought.
I earned a Ph.D. and a M.A. in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Notre Dame, and a B.A. in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Georgia.
I am also an editorial committee member (i.e. internal referee) for the journal dialectica and editor of the 'fundamentality' category for PhilPapers.
