Sahar is most interested in adopting (traditional) epistemology as her area of specialization. This research interest was sparked in 2014 while Sahar was an undergraduate student at UCLA. Enrolled in an introductory course on epistemology, she read Edmund Gettier's (1963) paper, "Is Justified True Belief Knowledge?." Sahar began inquiring, What is Knowledge? Is Williamson (2000) correct that this concept is not further analyzable? Is some kind of virtue required for acquiring a piece of knowledge? Sahar turned her final paper for this course into her writing sample as a part of her application for graduate school in philosophy. In 2015, Sahar was admitted to Saint Louis University and began taking seminars with (epistemologist) John Greco. As a doctoral student, Sahar is engaging literature concerning an analysis of knowledge, the metaphysics of belief, and the thesis that knowledge entails belief. Sahar's current inquiries concern the differences between the concept of knowledge and that of belief. Is belief a necessary condition for knowledge? She's thinking: no.
