I have been a member of the Department of Philosophy at Lafayette College since 2003, and received tenure in 2010. Before arriving at Lafayette, I taught philosophy at Brown University, Connecticut College, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
I continued my studies in philosophy at Brown University from 1997 - 2003, where I received my A.M. in 1999 and my Ph.D. in 2003 for a thesis on the epistemology of testimony. I wrote my dissertation, entitled "The Reasons Others Give Us: The Norms of Assertion Account of the Epistemic Status of Testimony," under the direction of Ernest Sosa (advisor), Jaegwon Kim, and James Van Cleve.
I have areas of research interest in epistemology, philosophy of language, the history of modern philosophy, and the history of 20th century analytic philosophy.
