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 the metaphysics of truth, the truth predicate, the way we use truth in giving semantic theories, and other truth-related stuff. That's the subject of my dissertation, which I'm writing under the direction of Keith Simmons, Stewart Shapiro, and Michael Lynch.

I'm also interested in the semantics of generics, natural language ontology (in particular the ontology of events), metasemantics, and conceptual engineering/ethics.

My Erdős number is 4. My path: Paul Erdős to R.D. Maudlin to John P. Burgess to Jc Beall to me.

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