I am a visiting assistant professor in the philosophy department at Denison University. I completed a Ph.D. in philosophy at the University of Massachusetts Amherst in 2022. My areas of specialization are metaphysics and the philosophy of religion. I also have interests in ethics, Indian philosophy, and classical Chinese philosophy.
In metaphysics, I am especially interested in puzzles about ordinary objects and sortal changes in ordinary objects, which was the subject of my dissertation.
In the philosophy of religion, I am especially interested in the problem of evil and in metaphysical questions about religious doctrines.
While many philosophers are cat lovers, I am instead a hippo enthusiast.
