My research lies in the intersection between the philosophy of the late Wittgenstein and contemporary analytic epistemology. More specifically, for my candidacy project I am evaluating neo-Wittgensteinian responses to the problem of philosophical skepticism. I also work in other areas in epistemology: on issues concerning the relation between knowledge and belief, and on the problem of forgotten evidence.

Additionally, I have a strong side-interest in Indian Philosophy, especially Advaita Vedanta. I am currently working on an analytical reconstruction of the dialectic between Krishna and Arjuna in the initial chapters of the Bhagavad Gita.
