I am a philosopher completing my dissertation in the Department of Logic and Philosophy of Science at the University of California, Irvine.

My research is in the philosophy of mathematics.  I am interested in foundational and methodological questions, as well as how such considerations interact.  In my dissertation I consider a number of traditional objections to set-theoretic foundations and show how they can also be raised against category-theoretic foundations.

I have independently taught a course on critical thinking and have had the opportunity to assist in the teaching of a large number of logic and philosophy courses.  Pedagogically I focus on student engagement and participation.  I find that the best opportunity for students to acquire important philosophical skills is through practice and use.

Please contact me if you have any questions about my research or teaching.  Here is a copy of my CV.
