I'm a philosopher of mind.

Most of my work is also connected to value theory, epistemology, metaphysics, or cognitive science.

I received​ my PhD from New York University in 2019. Before that, I studied Philosophy and Cognitive Science at Brown University.

In 2019-20, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Rice University through its Value of Consciousness project.

For 2020-21, I'm a Postdoctoral Fellow at Australian National University through its Centre for Consciousness.

From 2021-24, I'll be a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Oslo through its ConsciousBrainConcepts project.

My research examines:

  1. the formal structure of conscious experiences

  2. the ethics and metaethics of consciousness

  3. the epistemology of conscious experiences
