About Me

I'm currently an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Ashoka University and a Research Associate at Harvard University.

My interests span the philosophy of mind, language, epistemology, metaphysics and the history of philosophy. I'm particularly interested in the philosophy of perception. Topics that I'm working on include: the intentionality of bodily sensations, the metaphysics of constitution in the philosophy of mind, the metaphysics of bodily sensations, bodily sensations and cognitive penetration, introspection, memory and its connection to bodily states; I'm also interested in pictorial depiction, non-theistic faith, and the epistemological significance of death.

I earned my doctorate at Harvard University's Department of Philosophy in May 2011. I was then a Fellow in Philosophy at Harvard. I have also been a Visiting Fellow at the Centre for Philosophy, Jawaharlal Nehru University, where I gave a series of lectures on the philosophy of perception. Most recently, I was an Assistant Professor (ad hoc) at the Philosophy Department of the University of Delhi.
