About my work

I am a philosophy PhD student. I mainly work in epistemology, philosophy of science, and philosophy of machine learningI have additional interests in feminist philosophy and philosophy of religion.

My main research program is about the concept of evidence. I develop a view in which what is evidence for what is constituted through norm-conforming social deliberation.

About me

Currently, I am a PhD candidate at the UC Berkeley philosophy department.

Before that, I earned an MA in philosophy from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, after completing a BSc in physics and chemistry at the Hebrew University.

I am sometimes asked how I pronounce my name. The phonetic spelling is “rah-VEET  doh-THAN”. The German pronunciation comes close, you can hear what it sounds like by clicking the “listen” icon in the "German" tab here.
