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.
