Speaker Series Coordinator, 2013-14
I study the philosophy of physics, focusing on the foundations of quantum theory. I'm interested in evaluating various proposed solutions to the measurement problem, including the many-worlds interpretation, Bohmian mechanics, and GRW theory. I'm particularly interested in potentially fatal objections to each theory, such as: Is the many-worlds interpretation capable of reproducing the statistical predictions of textbook quantum mechanics? Can Bohmian mechanics and GRW be satisfactorily extended to relativistic quantum field theory? I also have research interests in formal epistemology and metaphysics. I received my bachelor's degree from MIT in 2009 and my master's from the University of Oxford in 2010.
