I am Associate Professor of Philosophy at Brandeis University. My research is in the History of Modern Philosophy, and I am especially interested in John Locke, David Hume and British Empiricism. I got my Ph.D. at the University of California, Berkeley and my B.A. at Williams College. 

I am currently working on Hume and Locke’s views about the nature of judgment and issues connected to the problem of causation in Hume’s philosophy.  In addition, I am interested in a number of topics in the history and philosophy of science, especially the nature of causation and scientific explanation. Finally, I have a growing interest in logic and the history of logic, and I enjoy teaching introductory symbolic logic and mathematical logic.
