I am a Ph.D student at Duke Philosophy. My areas of strength are early modern philosophy and philosophy of space and time. My areas of interests are Newton, 18th century mechanics, and Chinese philosophy. Currently I am working on three projects related to the problems of space in the early modern period. They are: Émilie du Châtelet's theory of space (especially the representation of space), Euler's compressed fluid mechanism of gravity, and Locke's doctrine of the simple idea of space. For details of my projects, please see my cv.
