I am a Visiting Assistant Professor in the department of philosophy at Binghamton University (SUNY). I previously held an EU mobility research fellowship at the University of Hradec Králové in the Czech Republic and a Junior Research Fellowship at St Hilda's College, University of Oxford.
I work at the intersections of philosophy of mind and epistemology with occasional forays into ethics, philosophy of psychiatry, and ethics of AI. The focus of my research is self-knowledge. Because I approach philosophy through its history, I also research figures whose work I take to address contemporary questions about self-knowledge and other minds, especially Butler, Kant, Wittgenstein, Ryle, and Murdoch.
I have published on the role of agency in self-knowledge of conscious thinking and belief; the place of testimony in the achievement of self-knowledge; moral testimony; delusions of thought insertion; Wittgenstein on other minds; and first-person authority.
My current research projects include:
I received my BA in philosophy from Bates College in Lewiston, Maine and my PhD from the University of Pittsburgh. My dissertation was titled "Four Essays on Self-Knowledge" because that's what it was. My supervisors were John McDowell and Kieran Setiya.
