Starting in the fall, I will be an Illinois Distinguished Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.

I work primarily in metaphysics. Right now issues in grounding, truthmaking, fundamentality, mereology, and where all these intersect take up most of my time. I am also interested in applied ethics, metaethics, philosophy of mind, and philosophy of religion.

Here is my CV.

Here is my dissertation abstract.
