I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Columbia University. I earned a PhD from Harvard University in a joint program bridging the Departments of South Asian Studies and Philosophy. Before joining Columbia, I was a Bersoff Faculty Fellow in the Department of Philosophy at New York University.
My research centers on non-standard theories of relations and dependence structures in the history of metaphysics, with a particular focus on Sanskrit and Tibetan Buddhist philosophical traditions. I also have interests in Classical Indian Philosophy more broadly as well as Early Modern European Philosophy. I am currently completing a book manuscript (under contract with Oxford University Press) on the Madhyamaka Buddhist ontological dependence structure understood as a kind of metaphysical indefinitism.
