I am an Associate Professor of Philosophy at New York University-Abu Dhabi, where I moved somewhat recently from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. During the Fall 2022 semester, I'm in residence and teaching at NYU New York.

My research on agency and the philosophy of mind focuses on the nature of intention and belief. I'm interested in questions about self-knowledge, self-control, and what we should believe about our own intentional actions, among other things. My book Philosophy of Action: A Contemporary Introduction is now available!

For a summary of my thoughts on various things, here is an interview with 3:16AM Magazine. You can reach me at sarah.paul@nyu.edu.
