Since my research sits at the intersection of several philosophical disciplines, I am eager to teach Philosophy of Action, Philosophy of Mind, and those dimensions of Metaphysics, Epistemology, and Ethics that relate to agency and freedom, self-knowledge, the nature of persons, practical reasoning and rationality, and moral responsibility. I am prepared to teach surveys as well as topical seminars in these fields. I also hope to teach introductory courses for students encountering philosophy for the first time.
As sole instructor
Metaphysics (Summer 2019, Summer 2018). Syllabus. Upper-division undergraduate course covering realism vs. nominalism; the ontological structure of concrete particulars (including the problem of the one and the many); endurantism vs. perdurantism; personal identity; the metaphysics of modality; causation.
Columbia Journey Seminar (2017-17; 2019-20). The CJS is a small group discussion seminar for first-year students enrolled in the Columbia Undergraduate Student Program (CUSP). The purpose of the CJS is to better understand some of the wider social and institutional realities that embed the scholars' experiences at Columbia University and NYC more broadly.
