I'm a philosopher of science, which (broadly) means I look at questions such as what science is, what the rationale is behind scientific arguments, what values scientists look for in a theory, and what the relationship is and should be between science and society. I'm currently a tenured Associate Professor in the Department of Interdisciplinary Studies and Liberal Studies (ISLS) as well as the Department of Philosophy at California State University, Northridge.

I received my Ph.D. in Philosophy and Science Studies from the University of California, San Diego, under the supervision of Nancy Cartwright. Others on my dissertation committee were Craig Callender, Christian W├╝thrich, Cathy Gere, Tal Golan, and Hasok Chang. Before that, I completed my Masters and Undergraduate degrees in physics in India.

When I'm not doing philosophy, I like to dabble in Indian classical music.
