I work in epistemology and the history of analytic philosophy (especially G.E. Moore and Susan Stebbing), but this work often overlaps with issues in metaphysics, the philosophy of language, the philosophy of mathematics, and the philosophy of science. You can find my publications here.
I’m working on a few different projects at the moment: a paper and a book chapter on hinge epistemology and philosophical disagreement (both with Annalisa Coliva), a paper on the role of common sense in Stebbing’s and Moore’s philosophy, a paper on Moore’s “Proof of an External World,” a paper on Mooreanism in metaphysics, and a book chapter on Stebbing’s philosophy of science.
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. (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 mostly made paintings and drawings.
