I joined Boise State in 2010, fresh from getting my Ph.D. at Rutgers. Before that, I got my B.A. in mathematics and philosophy from Balliol College, Oxford University. The end of spring semester 2016 I was promoted to Associate Professor.

In metaphysics, I work on relativism, vagueness, realism, and time. In epistemology, I work on knowledge, rationality, and epistemic circularity. My papers are available here:
