About me


In May 2013 I received my PhD in Philosophy from the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. I specialize in formal epistemology and traditional epistemology, and my work also relates to issues in philosophical logic, philosophy of mind and philosophy of science.  My other philosophical interests include philosophy of language and linguistics and metaethics. In the fall of 2013, I visited the ANU as a postdoctoral fellow, and since January 2014, I have worked at the philosophy department at Washington University in St. Louis as an assistant professor. Beginning in the fall of 2018, I will be an assistant professor of philosophy at the University of Colorado at Boulder.

My main research project right now is writing my book "Unsettled Thoughts", which develops an account of Bayesian rationality for non-ideal thinkers.

I also maintain the St. Louis Area Philosophy Events Calendar.

When I don't do philosophy, I like to cook and knit things. I also do aerial silks, which involves hanging from the ceiling wrapped up in fabric.
