I am a graduate student in philosophy at the University of Connecticut and a member of the Logic Group.

Most of my interests are in philosophy of language, metaphysics, and philosophical logic.

My research is on deflationism, the semantics of the truth predicate, and the connections between theories of truth, truth-making, theories of meaning, and semantic theories. I'm writing my dissertation, Truth and Truth-Conditions under the direction of Keith Simmons, Stewart Shapiro,  Michael Lynch, and Magdalena Kaufmann.

I'm also interested in the semantics of generics, natural language ontology (in particular the ontology of events), metasemantics, and conceptual engineering/ethics. I have a smaller side interest in skepticism (particularly the Humean variety) and social epistemology. 

Outside of philosophy, I'm an amateur coder and a science fiction enthusiast.
