I'm a second-year PhD candidate in Philosophy at New York University. Right now I'm thinking mostly about causation, causal modeling, and causal inference, and more generally about explanation and ontology, in social science and social theory. I have additional interests in logic and computation; social, ethical, and political issues surrounding computing technology; and the history of Black social and political thought.
I completed an AB at Harvard University in 2017, with a joint concentration in Philosophy and African & African American Studies and a secondary field in Computer Science. On the way to this degree I also completed coursework and research in statistics and signal processing.
Before graduate school I enjoyed a professional career as a data scientist and data engineer. I did a lot of computer programming during this time, and continue to program as a hobbyist as well as for personal productivity. I’m particularly interested right now in scientific computing (including probabilistic programming), document formatting and typesetting, and programming language design.
Outside of philosophy, I love music and enjoy being outdoors.
