I’m a Philosophy PhD student at UC Berkeley.

I graduated from Harvard in 2012 with a philosophy degree in the interdisciplinary Mind, Brain, and Behavior program.

I work primarily in philosophy of mind, epistemology, and philosophy of science. I argue in my dissertation that our concept of conscious experience is a particular kind of functional concept, that we necessarily rely on a tacit functional model when reasoning about experiences and experiencers.

I keep up a coding hobby by building tools for academics. I meditate (not frequently enough). I like to hike. And I enjoy the friendly competition of strategy-based board games.
