Thanks for visiting my site.

I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the City University of New York, specifically in the Philosophy Program at LaGuardia Community College. I am also a Chercheur Associé at the Institute for the History and Philosophy of Science and Technology, University of Paris 1 - Panthéon-Sorbonne (IHPST). 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. In 2016 I was 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 IHPST where I organized a workshop on causation and natural kinds as part of their Metascience project.

My research focuses on topics in the metaphysics, epistemology, and language of science, particularly regarding natural kinds. I also have interests in social epistemology, general philosophy of science, the history of modern philosophy (especially Locke and Hume), and proto-Existentialists like Nietzsche.

Finally, I am the lead chair in organizing LaGuardia's annual Undergraduate Philosophy Conference co-hosted by the Humanities Program and the Social Sciences Department.
