I am a doctoral candidate in Philosophy at Syracuse University. I completed a Certificate of Advanced Study in Disability Studies at Syracuse, and a B.A. in Philosophy at Western Washington University.

Most of my research is in metaphysics, especially on ontology, fundamentality, realism, reduction, essence, modality, and mereology. I also work on Leibniz's metaphysics and some issues in epistemology (analysis of knowledge, epistemic luck), philosophical theology (the Trinity), and the philosophy of disability.
