I am a Mellon/ACLS Dissertation Completion Fellow in philosophy at the University of Pennsylvania. My writing explores relationships (both historical and present) between lay, scientific, and philosophical ways of thinking about minds. My doctoral dissertation is supervised by Gary Hatfield, and concerns the nature of the beliefs that people attribute to one another (and other animals) in ordinary life.

I am also an alumnus of Penn's certificate program in Social, Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience, a member of the Penn chapter of Minorities and Philosophy, and an organizer of philosophy outreach initiatives for K-12 students throughout Philadelphia.
