Other Research

I worked as a Sophomore Research Assistant with the Department of Philosophy to research late philosopher O.K. Bouwsma’s unpublished works in order to create a complete index for the University of Texas at Austin. My responsibilities included (i) reading decades worth of Bouwsma's personal philosophy journals and (ii) analyzing, transcribing, and digitizing all important philosophical concepts, theories and other relevant information in said works.
