I am an Assistant Professor at Texas Tech University. Before that, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for Contemporary Epistemology and the Kantian Tradition (CONCEPT) for the AY 2017-2018. I received my PhD in philosophy at Northwestern University.
My research focuses on the intersection of epistemology, ethics and metaethics. I am especially interested in why epistemic requirements matter for agents. I defend a version of epistemic constructivism: the authority of epistemic normativity comes from the role that epistemic considerations play in our practical reasoning. In addition to Epistemology, Ethics, and Metaethics, I also have interests in applied epistemology and applied ethics.
From 2012-2015, I was a graduate fellow with the Brady Scholars Program in Ethics and Civic Life. I organized the Epistemology Brownbag Series at Northwestern from 2011-2015. Before coming to Northwestern, I completed an MA in Philosophy at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in 2011.
