I aim to do philosophy in a personally and socially relevant way. A bulk of my social epistemology work stems from reflections on the challenges, obstacles, and unjust social structures that I and others encounter in academia and beyond. I find a sense of joy and solidarity in discussing these issues with friends and colleagues. Here is a (non-exhaustive) list of writings that have particularly helped me in thinking about the social structures around me, and my place in them. I hope they help you too. If you suspect I would enjoy a piece of related writing, send it my way!
