I studied philosophy at the University of Illinois at Chicago and at Brown University. Since then I've worked for Texas Tech University, Fordham University, the University of Edinburgh, the University of New Mexico, and Washington University in St. Louis. I received the Rutgers Young Epistemologist Prize (in 2007) and my research on Intellectual Virtue and the Good Life was supported by an Arts and Humanities Research Council (UK) Early Career Fellowship (in 2013 and 2014). I am the author of two books: A Luxury of the Understanding: On the Value of True Belief (Oxford University Press, 2013) and A Critical Introduction to Skepticism (Bloomsbury Publishing, 2014).
Here are some videos of me talking about philosophy:

- "The Guise of the Good and the Problem of Partiality," University of Missouri, January 2016.
