I am an assistant professor of philosophy at the University of Texas at Austin. Before I came to Austin I was a post.doc at the University of Oslo (working with Øystein Linnebo). Before that I did my ph.d at Harvard University.

I work mainly in metaphysics and philosophical logic. Most of my work to date has been on the notion of (metaphysical) ground. My main focus has been on the logic of ground, the problem of grounding ground, and the paradoxes of ground. I also have research interests in the metaphysics of modality, vagueness, (mathematical) structuralism, indefinite extensibility, and inferentialist accounts of logic.
