about me

I am presently an Illinois Distinguished Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.

I work in metaphysics. Right now issues in grounding, truthmaking, fundamentality, mereology, and where these intersect take up most of my time. Other interests include applied ethics, metaethics, philosophy of mind, and philosophy of religion.
