About Me


I am an Associate Professor in the Philosophy Department at the University of Illinois at Chicago. I joined the department in 2014. Before that, I spent 2012–14 as a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow in Philosophy at the Centre for the Study of Mind in Nature at the University of Oslo. I received my PhD in 2012 from the University of Chicago, where I wrote a dissertation on intentional action and practical knowledge.

My main research interests are in philosophy of action, ethics, and epistemology. I am also interested in self-consciousness and moral psychology. And I have wide-ranging interests in the history of philosophy—Aristotle, Kant, and Wittgenstein are thinkers of particular interest to me.
