Thank you for visiting my site.
I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy (TT) at the City University of New York, specifically in the Philosophy Program at LaGuardia Community College. For more on LaGuardia's fantastic philosophy program, check out this NPR story.
I received my Ph.D. in philosophy under the supervision of John Symons in 2014. Afterwards I spent time as a Teaching Assistant Professor in the Philosophy and Religious Studies Department at North Carolina State University. From 2014-2015 I worked with the excellent undergrads in philosophy at Kansas State University, and prior to that during the 2013-2014 academic year I was a Chateaubriand Fellow at the Institute of History and Philosophy of Science and Technology, Paris 1 - Panthéon-Sorbonne where I organized a workshop on causation and natural kinds as part of their Metascience project.
My research focuses on topics in the metaphysics and language of science, particularly regarding natural kinds. I also have interests in general philosophy of science, the history of modern philosophy (especially Locke and Hume), and proto-Existentialists like Nietzsche.
