I am a Ph.D. candidate in philosophy at the University of California, Berkeley. Starting in October 2017, I will be a Junior Research Fellow at Pembroke College, Cambridge. My main research interests are in philosophy of mind, formal epistemology, and philosophy of science.

Currently, I'm a Co-Principal Investigator on a year-long research project titled "Grounding Sensible Qualities," funded by the New Directions in the Study of the Mind Project at the University of Cambridge. As part of the project, I'm organizing a two-day conference at Berkeley in May. Information about the conference can be found here.

I'm originally from the Boston area and did my undergraduate studies at Harvard University, where I was enrolled in the Mind, Brain, and Behavior program.
