I am an assistant professor in the Department of Philosophy at USC. I work on metaphysics, epistemology, the philosophy of mind, and philosophical logic. Before coming to USC in 2016 I was a PhD student at NYU; before that I was a graduate student at Oxford, where I earned my BPhil and DPhil in philosophy; before that I was an undergraduate at Brown, where I studied philosophy, cognitive neuroscience and physics.
