Dissertation Fellow, 2019-20
A Ph.D. candidate in the department of philosophy at the University of Notre Dame, Paul's research focuses on logic, the philosophy of logic, and the philosophy of mathematics. In his dissertation, Paul develops and defends a distinctively new model-theoretic approach to logicism inspired by recent work in model theory. He also has serious research interests in the history of 19th- and 20th-century philosophy (Kant, German Idealism, Early Analytic, Pragmatism, Phenomenology). Outside of philosophy, Paul is passionate about prison education and translating Vietnamese poetry. He received a 2019-20 Dominica and Frank Annese Dissertation Fellowship.
