I am completing my Ph.D. in Philosophy at the University of California, Berkeley. I did my A.B. in Philosophy at Harvard.

I work in philosophy of mind, epistemology, and metaphysics. My dissertation is about self-knowledge in mental action. In other work, I argue that engaging with literary modes of expression can help us do philosophy. I also think about psychology and cognitive science.

I write short fiction as well as philosophy. I like crossword puzzles and escape-the-room games. I run (slowly) and play tennis (with redeeming enthusiasm).
