Milo Phillips-Brown
I am a graduate student in philosophy at the MIT Department of Linguistics and Philosophy. I work primarily on philosophy of mind and philosophy of language―in particular, conflicting desires, how dispositions relate to desires, and the semantics of desire reports. I am also interested in rational defeat, and the connection between credence and belief.

I am the graduate director of PIKSI-Boston,
a summer program for undergraduates from underrepresented groups in philosophy.
