I completed my D.Phil in Philosophy at the University of Oxford and will be starting as the Stalnaker Postdoctoral Associate at MIT in the Fall of 2023. My areas of interest include metaphysics, formal and philosophical logic, and the history of analytic philosophy. My thesis focused of the logic of essence and ground, and was supervised by Tim Williamson and James Studd. I am currently working on developing hyperintensional theories of causation and counterfactual conditionals.
I studied philosophy, mathematics, and physics at Brandeis University. After graduating in 2012, I spent two years tutoring math and logic in addition to sitting in on philosophy seminars at UC Berkeley. I completed the B.Phil in Philosophy in 2016 before continuing to the D.Phil.
