I’m a 3rd-year PhD student in the Department of Philosophy at the University of California, Irvine. 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.

Right now, my work focuses on the role that common sense plays in philosophy. I’m interested in what common sense is and whether it should constrain our philosophical (and scientific) theorizing. Is it ever rational to give up our belief that things move in light of Zeno’s arguments to the contrary? Is it ever dogmatic to dismiss—in advance—certain philosophical arguments (e.g., skepticism, nihilism) because they conflict with what we know?

Before my MA, and shortly after my BFA, I was an Editorial Fellow at Rhizome at the New Museum of Contemporary Art, the New York Correspondent at e-flux, and an Associate Editor at SNAP Editions (in that order). I also made drawings that looked like this.
