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 summer of 2020. 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 started the program in the fall of 2015.

I run the philosophy of science blog, Asymptotic Philosophers, with Chris Mitsch from LPS.

I use PhilPeople, and (somewhat) ResearchGate. I just opened a twitter account. I have closed my Academia page because the website spams me too much.
