I'm a philosopher of mind. My research is mainly on philosophical issues about consciousness, especially questions about the structure of consciousness.
I'm also interested in a wide range of philosophical issues concerning mind, ethics, epistemology, metaphysics, language, science, and math.
I'm currently a Research Fellow at the Australian National University. From Fall 2023, I'll be an Assistant Professor in Philosophy at the University of Toronto.
I received my PhD in Philosophy from New York University in 2019, where I worked with David Chalmers (chair), Ned Block, and Thomas Nagel. Afterwards, I was a postdoctoral research fellow at Rice University (2019-20). I did my undergrad at Brown University, where I graduated in 2013 with a BA (Philosophy), BS (Cognitive Science), and MA (Philosophy).

Here's a brief summary of my research that draws from only the 1000-most common words in English:
"The way it feels to be you is different from the way it feels to be me, and even more different from the way it feels to be an animal. I study basic questions about why we feel, which things can feel at all, why some ways that we feel are good and others bad, and how we can become better at thinking about the ways we feel."
