Keys View, Joshua Tree, June 2020


I’m a PhD student in the Department of Philosophy at the University of California, Irvine.

I work primarily in epistemology and metaphysics (both traditional and social) and the history of analytic philosophy (especially G.E. Moore and Susan Stebbing). I also have side interests in the philosophy of language and the philosophy of science.

Before Irvine, I did my MA in Philosophy at Brandeis University. And before that, I received a BFA in Studio Art from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

I was an Editorial Fellow at Rhizome at the New Museum of Contemporary Art, the New York Correspondent at e-flux, and an Associate Editor at SNAP Editions before finding my way to philosophy.
