Hi, I am a PhD student in my second year at the Philosophy Department of the University of British Columbia. My research interests lie at the intersection of Aesthetics, the Philosophy of Mind and Epistemology. For example, I am interested in the structure and function of emotions, along with the role they play in guiding our evaluative judgments and thought processes. While the emotions are a fascinating topic in their own right, I believe that studying them can also help us better understand human cognitive architecture. Other research interests include theories of the imagination and self knowledge.
