My interests in philosophy stem from my study of the writings of the “late Wittgenstein.” As an M.A. student I had worked on tackling certain philosophical problems that arise in the philosophy of emotions, philosophy of mind and epistemology by using Wittgensteinian methods and techniques. For my M.A. thesis I worked on developing some of Wittgenstein’s insights - as found in his On Certainty - as a response to the problem of philosophical scepticism. As a graduate student at OSU, I’d like to apply Wittgensteinian methods and insights to philosophical problems that arise in the philosophy of language, logic and mathematics. I am also interested in political philosophy: more specifically, I am interested in issues concerning the nation state, nationalism, justice and immigration.
