I’m a Lecturer in Philosophy and a Digital Learning Fellow at MIT, where I got my PhD in September 2020. I work on philosophy of language and mind, metaphysics, and philosophy of science, with current projects on metasemantics and the foundations of linguistics.
I also work on natural language semantics (neo-Davidsonian event semantics), and on questions in the history of analytic philosophy, the philosophy of sociology, and action theory.
In Fall 2023, I’m teaching Minds and Machines, an introduction to philosophy of mind and artificial intelligence, which I am also running as a free philosophy MOOC on MITx Online, Minds and Machines, along with Paradox and Infinity, a course on the intersection of philosophy and mathematics.
