I am a lecturer in philosophy at Towson University. As a graduate student I attended Johns Hopkins, where I finished a PhD, under the direction of Michael Williams, in 2013. My main areas of research are epistemology and the philosophy of language. I am especially interested in the ways in which the social nature of inquiry shapes epistemic norms. At Towson I teach four classes each semester, usually three sections of Intro to Ethics and one upper level course.
