My research is at the intersections of epistemology, ethics, and social philosophy. That work is motivated primarily by two questions: (1) how and why epistemic norms apply to us, and (2) how epistemic norms for groups differ from norms for individuals. I investigate both questions using traditional philosophical methods as well as via agent-based computer simulations. I also use agent-based computer simulations to investigate questions more squarely in political philosophy, social epistemology, and philosophy of science.
I organize the Penn Reasons and Foundations in Epistemology Conference (PeRFECt) with Errol Lord and Lisa Miracchi. More information about PeRFECt can be found here. In 2014, I organized PRPSEW14.
Before coming to Penn, I received a Ph.D. in Philosophy at the University of Michigan.
