I’m a PhD student in the Department of Philosophy at the University of California, Irvine. I’m advised by Annalisa Coliva.

I work primarily in epistemology, metaphysics, and the history of analytic philosophy (especially G.E. Moore and Susan Stebbing). I also have side interests in the philosophy of language and the philosophy of science.

Before Irvine, I did my MA in Philosophy at Brandeis University. And before that, I received a BFA in Studio Art from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Before finding my way to philosophy, I worked as an art writer and editor in New York.
