About

I'm an assistant professor at Washington University in St. Louis and a philosopher of psychology in the PNP (Philosophy-Neuroscience-Psychology) Program. Before coming to St. Louis I was a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow at Oxford University.

I earned my Ph.D. at the University of Maryland and my B.A. at Vassar College

My research specialization--the split-brain cases--is a bit odd for a philosopher, but I think the cases relate to almost every interesting issue in the philosoophy of mind. I've used them to address everything from the nature of commonsense psychology, to the role of neural facts in psychological taxonomy and individuation, to the structure of consciousness. Recently I've been thinking a lot about explicitly self-refering or self-conscious thoughts and their role in mind and personhood.

I am very excited to be a Fellow at the National Humanities Center this academic year, 2014-2015.
