I classify my research interest to fall within the philosophy of statistics and the philosophy of social science, where I critically discuss social-scientific practices from the perspective of statistical analysis. Since a scientific method is only good insofar as it generates data that enables valid statistical inferences from which conclusions suitable to inform real-world applications can be drawn, philosophical discussions of scientific methods must not lose sight of data analysis and real-world application. I am currently in the process of writing my dissertation, where I develop some projects from this perspective. I expect to finish in the winter/spring of 2021. For more information, please see research.
I have secondary interests in epistemology (both formal and traditional), machine learning, and logic.
I am currently a graduate student at the Department of Logic and Philosophy of Science at UC- Irvine. I possess a MA degree in philosophy from Simon Fraser University and a Bachelor’s in both psychology and philosophy from the University of British Columbia.
I run the philosophy of science blog, Asymptotic Philosophers, with Chris Mitsch from LPS.
