I am currently a visiting lecturer at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.

I work primarily in metaphysics (my interests lie in ontology), though I do a fair amount of work in the philosophy of religion and have interests in applied ethics, metaethics, and the philosophy of science.

Right now, issues in grounding, mereology, and truthmaking are currently occupying most of my philosophical time.

Here is my curriculum vitae.
