I teach philosophy at West Virginia University. I received my Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania in 2018, followed by a postdoc at the College of Wooster in Ohio. I previously received an M.A. from York University in Toronto and a B.A. from the College of William & Mary in Virginia. I grew up in the North Country of New York.

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

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