I work on aesthetics (esp. literature and music), metaphysics, philosophy of language, and Asian philosophy. My favorite topics are found at their intersections.
I’m also committed to public philosophy. My writings have appeared in WIRED, LA Times, USA Today, Public Seminar, and Aesthetics for Birds, among others.
I received my PhD in Philosophy and PhD minor in Comparative Literature from Stanford, M.St. in Philosophical Theology from Oxford, and B.A.s in Philosophy and English from Emory.
