Currently, I am a Resident Associate at the National Humanities Center (2013-2014). My previous positions include Visiting Assistant Professor at Texas Tech University (2011-2013) and Visiting Scholar at Washington University in Saint Louis for an NEH Summer Seminar (Metaphysics and Mind, 2013). I earned my Ph.D. in 2011 from the University of California, Davis for a dissertation on the hard problem of consciousness.
My research is at the intersection of philosophy of mind, metaphysics, and epistemology since it centers on the hard problem of consciousness. I am particularly interested in the metaphysical assumptions upon which the hard problem is premised, especially assumptions about the thesis of physicalism and the nature of the physical.
