My dissertation research focuses on the intersection of philosophy of time and philosophy of perception. My aim is to see to what extent the so called "flow of time" can be taken seriously in both metaphysics and perception. I'm attempting to develop a form of presentism that makes sense of these ideas.

I have an interest in metaphysics and philosophy of science generally, especially concerning laws of nature, dispositions, modality, ontic structural realism, philosophy of perception, and philosophy of probability.

Previously, at Colorado State University, where I did my MA, I worked on history of philosophy and studied the metaphysics, cosmology, and philosophy of physics of 19th century American Pragmatist philosopher, Charles Sanders Peirce. In my thesis, I argued for a rational reconstruction of Peirce’s evolutionary account of the laws of nature, which can be found on my page.
