I teach at West Virginia University, where I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy. I received my Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania in 2018, followed by a postdoc at the College of Wooster. I previously studied at York University and the College of William & Mary, and grew up in the North Country of New York.

I specialize in the history and philosophy of psychology. Most of my writing investigates mental phenomena—such as beliefs, values, memories, and intelligence—invoked by lay people and cognitive scientists in order to mark differences between creatures with minds.

In Fall 2019, I am teaching Philosophy of Mind and Introduction to Symbolic Logic.
