Biography, Education and Training

I work at the intersection of philosophy of mind, epistemology, and social philosophy. The big theme in my research is how cognition can be hijacked in ways that contribute to the perpetuation of oppressive social structures - and in how we can fight back.  I am interested in the nature of belief, evidence-resistance and the dynamics of belief revision, and social dimensions of the mind. I completed my PhD at Rutgers University in 2022, and was a University of California President's Postdoctoral Fellow in 2022-23.
