I earned my Ph.D. in 2011 from the University of California, Davis for a dissertation on the hard problem of consciousness. Since then, I have continued my research at Texas Tech University, Washington University in St. Louis, and the National Humanities Center in Research Triangle Park, NC.

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) and other foundational issues concerning the hard problem (including what the problem itself is supposed to be).
