I’m currently a PhD student in the Department of Philosophy at the University of California, Irvine.
My philosophical interests are both theoretical and historical. In particular, I’m interested in epistemology, the history of analytic philosophy (especially G.E. Moore and Susan Stebbing), metaphysics, the philosophy of language, the philosophy of science, and philosophical methodology. You can find my publications here.
I’m working on a few different projects at the moment: a paper on hinge epistemology and philosophical skepticism, and a book chapter on philosophical progress, skepticism, and disagreement for the Routledge Handbook of Philosophy of Disagreement (both with Annalisa Coliva); a paper on Moore and Stebbing on common sense; a paper on Moore’s “Proof of an External World”; a paper on Mooreanism in metaphysics; a paper on remembering what you know; and a book chapter on Stebbing’s philosophy of science. Get in touch with me for drafts.
I also teach. As primary instructor, I taught Puzzles and Paradoxes at UC Irvine and an MTEL Prep course at Brandeis University. I’ve also served as a graduate student instructor for various courses (mostly in philosophy, but also in art history and legal studies) at UC Irvine, Brandeis, and Harvard. Through TH!NK, I’ve taught philosophy to fifth-graders.
Prior to moving to California, I lived in Boston where I did my MA in Philosophy at Brandeis University. Before Boston, and before finding my way to philosophy, I worked as an art writer and editor in New York writing about art influenced by the internet. (Here’s one of my favorite interviews I did from that time.) And before all that, I received a BFA in Studio Art from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where I made paintings and drawings and also ran Pool.
