I am a visiting professor of philosophy at Mississippi State UniversityMy research primarily focuses on our access to the mind, and thus lies at the intersection of the philosophy of mind, cognitive science, and epistemology. I received my Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Wisconsin, Madison.

This summer I participated in the NEH seminar Self-Knowledge in Eastern and Western PhilosophiesParticipating faculty included Akeel Bilgrami, Jay Garfield, Alison Gopnik, Shaun Nichols, Susanna Siegel, and Evan Thompson, one of whom I was delighted to learn shares a passion of mine!

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