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

Much of my current research focuses on various issues in epistemology and the history of analytic philosophy (especially Susan Stebbing). But I also have interests in metaphysics, 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.
