I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Seattle Pacific University.

Before moving to Seattle I was a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Notre Dame, and at the University of Oxford. I did my Ph.D. in Philosophy at Rutgers University.

My primary areas of research are epistemology, philosophy of language, and philosophy of religion, with strong secondary interests in philosophy of mind, metaphysics, and early modern philosophy.

Here are my Google Scholar page and Phil Papers profile.

I am also PhilPapers editor for the categories Defeat, Primitivism about Knowledge, Norms of Assertion, and Epistemology of Religion.
