I am a Research Assistant Professor in philosophy at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, and core faculty member in the Philosophy, Politics and Economics program.

Before that, I was a post-doctoral research fellow at the Centre for Philosophy, Politics and Economics at the University of Groningen. And before that, I was a post-doctoral fellow at the Centre for Moral and Political Philosophy at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, working on Ethics and Uncertainty. I received my PhD in philosophy from MIT in 2016.

I work on rationality --- what is it rational to believe, what is it sensible to do, and what is it reasonable to care about.

I am interested in formal epistemology, decision theory, philosophy of language, philosophy of economics, coffee, stand-up comedy, and various fretted string instruments.

Also check out 24.00x Introduction to Philosophy: God, Knowledge, and Consciousness. It is a free, open-access edX course I helped create and am helping teach.
