I'm a philosopher working in philosophy of mind, philosophy of cognitive science, and epistemology. 

Currently, I am a postdoctoral fellow in the Princeton Society of Fellows. I'm affiliated with both the Department of Philosophy and the Program in Cognitive Science. I received my Ph.D. from New York University in 2015.

 

My Research

I argue that cognitive states have a certain capacity to be rationally revised in response to conflicting evidence, whereas at least some perceptual experiences lack this capacity. Relying on this asymmetry between cognition and perception, I further argue that we sometimes visually perceive social features. For instance, we sometimes visually perceive the intentions of others.
