Biography:  

I am broadly interested in epistemology: as it relates to psychology (e.g. how to individuate mental states), and social epistemology (social modeling and especially feminist epistemology). I also have a background in phenomenology and existentialism, in particular Heidegger, Nietzsche, and Merleau-Ponty. I am becoming increasingly interested in contemporary philosophy of perception and mind.

I completed my B.A. at UC Berkeley with a double-major in Gender and Women’s Studies and Rhetoric in 2013, and my M.A. at Columbia University in Philosophy in 2015.
