Ph.D. Student

Social Sciences 130 or 138


I am interested in philosophy of mind/cognitive science, epistemology (especially social), and philosophy of religion among other areas.

In philosophy of mind/cognitive science, I am interested in perception (especially vision and audition), attention and its relation to consciousness, and other areas. 

In epistemology, I'm interested in testimony, peer disagreement, the concept of epistemic peerhood, and how psychology comes to bear on how we determine our epistemic peers. 

In philosophy of religion, I am interested in the problem of evil, divine hiddenness and epistemological considerations about evidence for God.
