My main philosophical interests are Islamic philosophy and the philosophy of science. In Islamic philosophy, my main focus is on Avicenna’s metaphysics and its influence on Mediaeval and Early Modern thought. As for the philosophy of science, I am most interesting in interpretations of quantum mechanics and the causal status of natural selection (is it a force like gravity or just a statistical description of organism level causes?).  In my non-philosophical life, I am a big fan of the theatre, ballet, yoga, and cats.
