This summer I participated in the NEH Metaphysics and Mind seminar at Washington University in St. Louis, MO (here).
While at Tulane, I've taught seminars in metaphysics and philosophy of language, along with advanced symbolic logic and introductory courses in logic and philosophy. In Fall 2013 I taught a historically-oriented course in Analytic Philosophy.
In Spring 2014 I am teaching an introductory course in philosophy of mind and a seminar at the intersection of philosophy of language and metaphysics.
