SIDATH RANKADUWA

M.A. Student;
Department of Philosophy, Western University

I am from Halifax (Nova Scotia), pursuing my M.A. in Philosophy at Western Ontario. I graduated from Dalhousie University in 2018, with a B.A. in Music and Neuroscience. I am interested in topics that intersect neuroscience and philosophy, particularly issues in epistemology, studies in consciousness, and the mind-brain relationship. I am also fascinated in neuroethics, and hope to conduct research in this branch of philosophy in the future. Teaching and artistic performance are my passions, as well as meditation and well-being.
