I am a professor of philosophy at UCLA (2022-present). Prior to that, I was at Middlebury College in Vermont (2006-2022). My research interests include the general philosophy of science, philosophy of social science, and epistemology. I am currently extending my previous work in these areas to social-scientific conceptions of race and segregation. In 2025, I will be the Senior Visiting Fellow at the University of Pittsburgh's Center for Philosophy of Science. In the 2022-2023 academic year, I was a Future of Truth Fellow at the University of Connecticut's Humanities Institute. In 2017, I received the American Council of Learned Societies' Burkhardt Award, which funded a five-year project, Explanation as Inferential Practice. My teaching interests overlap with my research interests. I am also an enthusiastic musical hobbyist, who plays bass, guitar, oud, and electronic devices. My genres of choice are jazz, avant garde, and rock. I enjoy performance, improvisation, and composition. I'm also fortunate to have two adorable dogs.
