My main research project investigates basic conceptual questions about the structure of consciousness: Does consciousness come in degrees? Is consciousness multidimensional? Are conscious experiences continuous or discrete? How do experiential parts relate to experiential wholes? Which kinds of mathematical structures should we use to model experiences?

Here's an introductory piece—"The Light and the Room"—that provides an accessible overview of my work.

I also have work on the ethics of consciousness, on analog and iconic representation, and on perception, introspection, and attention, and on infinite sums. My main area is the philosophy of mind, but I have research interests in most areas of contemporary analytic philosophy, including also ethics, metaphysicsepistemology, science, language, math, and cognitive science.

I received​ my PhD in Philosophy from New York University in 2019, where I worked with David Chalmers, Ned Block, and Thomas Nagel. After my PhD, I did postdocs at Rice University, the University of Oslo, and the Australian National University. Before my PhD, I did my undergrad at Brown University, where I graduated in 2013 with a BA in Philosophy, BS in Cognitive Science, and MA  in Philosophy.
