I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the University of Denver.  I completed my Ph.D. in the Department of Philosophy at Columbia University.  Prior to my arrival at Columbia, I studied at the University of Toronto.

My research addresses metaphysical issues that arise at the intersection of philosophy of action and mind.  My current work focuses on effort.  I argue that exerting effort plays a causal role in every action that you perform.

I am also interested in the underexplored notion of mental action.  Along with Matt Soteriou, I am organizing an international conference on the topic of mental action and the metaphysics of mind.  Details are forthcoming.

Here is a copy of my vita.

My course materials are available to students enrolled at DU.
