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. 

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
