I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the COGITO Epistemology Research Centre on the Dimensions of Wellbeing Project. I finished my Ph.D. in philosophy at Rutgers University in 2021 under the direction of Ernie Sosa,
My current research projects focus either on ignorance, inquiry, or wellbeing. One common thread through my research is the view that virtue in epistemology can be manifest in either dominant (knowledgeable) or recessive (ignorant) ways. The honest know when to lie. The brave know when to run away. The epistemically virtuous know when to remain ignorant.
Beyond epistemology, I have research interests in the philosophy of wellbeing, ethics, the philosophy of language, the philosophy of religion and early modern philosophy. I graduated with distinction from the University of Oxford with an MPhil in philosophical theology (2014) and from Westmont College with a BA in philosophy (2012).
