I'm currently a postdoc on Robbie Williams' Nature of Representation Project at the University of Leeds. I work on epistemology and philosophy of language. I did my PhD at MIT.

My current research interests include epistemology, including epistemic utility theory, modeling beliefs and credences, and normative uncertainty. I also work on modals (especially deontic modals) and conditionals.

Here's my CV.
