I am currently a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow at Rice University in association with a research seminar on Consciousness and Value directed by Uriah Kriegel and Charles Siewert. In 2020-21, I will be a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Australian National University in association with a project on the Language of Consciousness directed by Daniel Stoljar.

Before that, I was a PhD student at NYU. At NYU, I worked with David Chalmers (PhD supervisor), Ned Block, and Thomas Nagel. I also spent two semesters as a visiting student at Institut Jean Nicod in Paris, where I worked with Uriah Kriegel.

Before that, I was an undergrad at Brown University, where I worked with Jaegwon Kim and Christopher Hill. I graduated in 2013 with a BA in Philosophy, BS in Cognitive Science, and an MA in Philosophy. I was a recipient of the Beinecke Scholarship in 2012.

Before that, I was an International Baccalaureate student at Shawnee Mission East High School, which is when I first discovered my interest in philosophy. I wrote my senior paper on philosophical zombies.

Outside my academic interests, I also like fitness, food, and games. Sometimes when I’m not thinking about experiences, I even have some experiences of my own.
