I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the University of Michigan. Before coming to Michigan as an LSA Collegiate Fellow, I completed my PhD at the University of Southern California and my BA at UNC Chapel Hill. Recently, I spent the academic year 2021-22 at UT Austin as the Harrington Faculty Research Fellow in Philosophy.
I work mainly on issues in metaphysics and philosophical logic, particularly those that concern radically permissive ontologies. Many of my recent projects explore material plenitude: the view that there is a multitude of coincident objects wherever there is any material object. I also have interests in epistemology, aesthetics, and the philosophy of language.
