I am a visiting professor of philosophy at Mississippi State University
My work is primarily focused on the nature of our access to our own mental states, which is a topic at the intersection of the philosophy of mind, philosophy of cognitive science, and epistemology.

I received my Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Wisconsin, Madison under the supervision of Lawrence Shapiro.

Outside of philosophy, I enjoy following sports, watching good television, and playing chess, guitar, and piano. While in the past chess has been a bit of an obsession, I'm currently enjoying a healthy relationship with it!
