I am Assistant Professor in the Department of Philosophy at Brandeis University. My main research interests are in epistemology and the philosophy of action. I am also interested in the nature of reasons, the philosophy of perception, existentialism and the history of modern philosophy. I received my Ph.D. from U.C. Berkeley in 2007 and my A.B. from Harvard in 2001.
From June 2013 till July 2015, I will hold a Humboldt Fellowship as a visiting researcher at the Institute of Philosophy at the University of Leipzig. During this time I will be finishing my book Evidence and Agency: Norms of Belief for Promising and Resolving.
