I am a PhD Candidate in the Philosophy Department at the University of California, Davis. While my philosophical interests are broad, my research is primarily in epistemology on topics relating to epistemic rationality and belief revision. I have a penchant for using formal tools to elucidate philosophical problems and concepts.
