I'm an Assistant Professor in the Department of Philosophy at McGill University in Montreal. Before coming to McGill, I was the Oscar R. Ewing Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Philosophy at Indiana University, Bloomington from 2016-2018, and I received my PhD from Rutgers University in 2016.

I work primarily in metaethics, metaphysics, and epistemology, but my work also extends into normative ethics, moral psychology, and philosophy of language. Recently, I’ve been especially interested in the metaphysics of normative properties: whether normative properties are non-natural (and what the heck that means), and whether an account of what metaphysically explains why something has some normative property should be unified across the practical and epistemic domains. See my research page for my publications and works in progress. 



On the other side of my work-life juggling act, I sing and play the flute in an "eclectic rock" band, go outdooring with my dog, play tennis, garden, and attempt to cook tasty vegan things (with moderate success). See proof below.
