My work lies at the intersection of the philosophy of science, the philosophy of cognitive science, and ethics, with a focus on the nature and science of animal minds. My research examines conceptual and methodological problems in comparative (animal) cognition science and their implications for the treatment of nonhuman animals.
I will be joining the Department of Philosophy at Rochester Institute of Technology as Assistant Professor beginning in August 2017.
I received my Ph.D. from Boston University in 2014 under the supervision of Alisa Bokulich and Colin Allen (Indiana University). Since then, I have held the McDonnell Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Philosophy-Neuroscience-Psychology (PNP) Program at Washington University in St. Louis and a Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Berlin School of Mind and Brain at Humboldt University in Berlin, Germany. I am currently a Visiting Fellow in the Philosophy and Religion Department at Northeastern University.
