I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Philosophy and a Core Member of the Vision: Science to Applications (VISTA) program at York University. I received my PhD in Philosophy from UCLA in Spring 2018. From 2018-2019 I was a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Centre for Philosophical Psychology, at the University of Antwerp.
I work mainly in philosophy of mind and philosophy of psychology. My interests extend into philosophy of language, philosophy of science, and 20th century phenomenology. My research focuses on how we perceive the world to be organized, how our perception of the world is itself organized, and how the structure of perception relates to the perception of structure. I look at the findings and underlying commitments of research in perceptual psychology and I draw on conceptual tools developed in philosophy of language in order to better understand the nature of our capacities to grasp the world perceptually.
I grew up in Bozeman, MT and went to college at Montana State University. Before going to UCLA, I got my MA in Philosophy at Brandeis University.
