I'm a graduate student in philosophy at the University of Oxford, specializing in formal epistemology and Aristotle. In 2014-15, I'll be a Bersoff Assistant Professor / Faculty Fellow at NYU. You can view my CV here.
In my dissertation, Uncommon Knowledge (supervised by Frank Arntzenius and Timothy Williamson), I argue that we rarely, if ever, have common knowledge or belief of the sort often used to explain coordination, convention and the conversational common ground. But the rarety of common knowledge should not concern us; I argue that we can explain these social phenomena using more mundane, finitely iterated attitudes.
Before coming to Oxford, I was a classicist. I am still working on a variety of projects about Aristotle's physics and metaphysics. I also have a longstanding interest in ancient China, and am currently working (together with Ernest Brewster) on two projects about moral knowledge in the writings of Wang Yangming and his immediate successors.
