I am Associate Professor in the Department of Philosophy at Brandeis University. My main research interests lie at the intersection of philosophy of mind, ethics and epistemology. I am also interested in philosophy of action, 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. 

You can find out more about me (including my favorite condiment) in my interview for the Blog of the APA.

You can find out more about my work in my interview for 3:AM Magazine.

My paper "Do Reasons Expire? -- An Essay on Grief" was just published in Philosophers' Imprint. It is my favorite piece of writing, most of the time.

My book Evidence and Agency: Norms of Belief for Promising and Resolving was published by Oxford University Press in 2015.

Evidence and Agency is the winner of the 2016 Sanders Book Prize. The prize is awarded by the American Philosophical Association to the best book in philosophy of mind, metaphysics or epistemology that engages the analytic tradition published in English in the previous five-year period.

Evidence and Agency also received an honorable mention in the competition for the 2017 APA Book Prize.

There is also an animated video version of it on Wireless Philosophy!
