About Me

I am a lecturer in philosophy at Stanford University. I got my PhD from the Philosophy Department at New York University in 2014. My committee members were Paul Boghossian (chair), Ned Block, Jim Pryor, and Crispin Wright. I spent the next year as a lecturer at NYU and then three years as an Andrew W. Mellon fellow in the Humanities at Stanford.

Before starting graduate school in philosophy, I went to college at UC Berkeley and graduated in 2004 with a double major in philosophy and cognitive science. In the years between college and grad school, I was a research assistant for Anne Treisman in the Psychology Department in Princeton, running fMRI and behavioral experiments on the cognitive neuroscience of attention. In 2009, I was a visiting student at the École Normale Supérieure and the Institut Jean Nicod in Paris, France.
