About Me

 

I'm an assistant professor of philosophy at Boston University. I work mainly in metaphysics, the philosophy of logic, and the philosophy of science. My current research involves arguing for a kind of 'humble realist' view in the metaphysics and epistemology of logic, and exploring its consequences in other areas of the philosophy of logic and metaphysics.  For more about my research, see my research page.

I received my PhD from Princeton in 2016. Prior to that, I was a graduate student at the University of Colorado. I have a B.A. from the University of Massachusetts-Boston. 

Before starting graduate school, I taught high school mathematics and middle school in Boston. I like teaching and thinking about pedagogy, especially about how to forge conceptual connections between technical and highly abstract issues in philosophy and the things most of us care about, which are generally neither technical nor abstract. 

Rock climbing is my second great love after philosophy. I put some (randomly sized, technology is not my strong suit) pictures of me bouldering here
