Hi! I am a senior lecturer in the department of philosophy at the Ohio State University. I received my PhD in philosophy in 2020 from the Ohio State University, under the supervision of Ben Caplan and William Taschek.
I work primarily on issues in the philosophy of language and metaphysics. My doctoral dissertation examines issues surrounding the phenomena termed de jure co-reference. In addition to de jure co-reference, I am interested in the following topics:
Mental Files and Semantic Relationism
Formal vs Semantic Relationism
The semantics and pragmatics of referential terms (e.g. names, definite descriptions, pronouns, indexicals, and demonstratives)
The Answering Machine Puzzle
Metaphysics of propositions
