Department of Philosophy, Kansas State University
I am a Visiting Assistant Professor at Kansas State University.
I work mainly in epistemology. My dissertation, which was supervised by David Christensen at Brown University, explores issues surrounding permissivism about epistemic rationality and develops a theory of epistemic supererogation as a plausible form of permissivism. I also have research interests in ethics, philosophy of science (especially philosophy of probability) and decision theory.
I having teaching interests in epistemology, logic, ethics, and philosophy of science. I have served as the primary instructor for two classes at Brown University: Phil 0230 Human Knowledge and Truth and Phil 220 Introduction to Philosophy. I have also taught classes in Logic and Paradox, Decision Theory, and Probability for the Summer@Brown pre-college program. I am currently teaching three sections of Philo 130: Introduction to Moral Philosophy at Kansas State.
