My PhD thesis, titled “Causal Necessity in Aristotle’s Philosophy”, focuses on metaphysics. My research in ancient philosophy focuses on Aristotle’s philosophy of science. In metaphysics, I am interested in ontology; particularly, I would like to study the relationship between existence, identity, and modality. I develop similar interests in medieval Arabic philosophy. My research in Arabic philosophy focuses on existence and the individuation principle.
