I am a philosopher who specializes in epistemology, philosophy of mind, and metaphysics, with a special focus on David Hume and other figures in the early modern period. My doctoral dissertation, which I defended in June of 2019 at the University of Notre Dame, concerned Hume’s account of knowledge. For the 2020-2021 academic year, I am an adjunct assistant teaching professor at Notre Dame. For the 2019-2020 academic year, I was a 5+1 Postdoctoral Teaching Scholar at Notre Dame. I did my undergraduate work at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
