Research Interests: Epistemology, Philosophy of Language, Ethics

I will start my appointment at Chicago in Autumn 2019. I received my BA in philosophy from Reed College and my PhD in philosophy from MIT.  Before coming to Chicago, I will be a Bersoff Fellow at the Department of Philosophy at NYU during the 2018-19 academic year.

Most of my research is in epistemology.  I am particularly interested in belief.  I have worked on the relationship between belief and credence, on whether epistemic rationality is permissive, whether we can believe at will, and whether it can be rational to have imprecise credences.  I also have research interests in formal semantics, especially the semantics of modals and counterfactuals.
