I am a lecturer and postgraduate research associate in the Philosophy department at Princeton University.

Previously, graduate student at Princeton (2012–2017) and UC Santa Barbara (2009–2012),
instructor at The College of New Jersey (Fall 2016),
software developer at NextAce (2006–2012),
and undergraduate Philosophy major in the Torrey Honors Institute at Biola University (2002–2006).

Research Interests

Metaphysics, etc. (e.g., logic, epistemology, bits of ethics and history of philosophy)

My current research project concerns central questions within metaphysics: What does it mean to describe the world ‘as it is in itself’? And what are the right way to understand the tools with which we do this?

I argue that if you want to really reject reductionism about various things—which I do—then there are some crazy (and interesting!) things you should believe. It's a long story.

For more details, feel free to see my research statement.
