In June 2019, I completed my B.Sc. in Government and Economics at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). During my B.Sc., I got increasingly drawn to some fundamental questions in social science methodology, e.g. about the purpose of rational choice theory explanations and the possibility of uncovering law-like causal generalizations in political science and economics. To further learn about these questions, I decided to stay at the LSE to pursue an M.Sc. in Philosophy of the Social Sciences, from which I graduated in September 2020, winning the Andrea Mannu Prize.
