I received a B.A. in Philosophy (with Honors) and Linguistics from Stanford University in 2011.  I joined the Princeton Philosophy Department in Fall 2011.  My research interests are in the history of philosophy in the modern period, with a focus on the history of epistemology and philosophy of science.  Figures of particular interest to me include Hume, Kant, Nietzsche, and the American Pragmatists.  I am currently writing my dissertation on the critiques of scientism found in the writings of Nietzsche and William James.
