I recently received my PhD in philosophy from Indiana University Bloomington. I also have a BA in philosophy from the University of Kansas and an MA in philosophy from Northern Illinois University.

My main interests lie at the intersection of philosophy of mind, consciousness studies, and philosophy of cognitive science. I am also knowledgeable in philosophy of biology, epistemology, and philosophy of language.

In my dissertation I advance a new approach to the scientific study of consciousness and its evolutionary origins.
