I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the CUNY Graduate Center and at City College of New York. I completed my PhD in Philosophy at the University of Texas at Austin. My dissertation (written under the supervision of Josh Dever and Mark Sainsbury) examined the extent to which semantics can serve as a guide to metaphysics.
I still work primarily in philosophy of language and ontology. My current research is focused on the nature of social groups (teams, committees, races, genders), the semantics of terms that pick out social groups (plurals, collective nouns, slurs), and interface between semantics and ontology.

I'm a co-organizer of the New York Philosophy of Language Workshop. Check out our line-up here.
