curriculum vitae



I am an assistant professor in the philosophy department at Yale. I completed my PhD in philosophy at MIT in 2012. Before that, I was an undergraduate at Princeton, and an MPhil student at Cambridge
I work mainly in epistemology, though I have secondary interests in the philosophy of science, metaethics, and the philosophy of mind, especially as they relate to epistemology.
