Shamik Dasgupta to join faculty

Shamik Dasgupta, currently an Associate Professor at Princeton, has accepted an offer to join the Philosophy Department at Berkeley. Dasgupta is a specialist in metaphysics and the philosophy of science. His work explores how symmetry considerations can be used to argue for metaphysical conclusions about spacetime, individuals, and quantities. We are looking forward to welcoming him to Berkeley in Fall 2016.
