I am an Assistant Teaching Professor and Assistant Undergraduate Director in the Department of Philosophy at Rutgers University, New Brunswick.
Most of my research focuses on the following four topics: (i) non-causal explanation in metaphysics and the sciences, (ii) the metaphysics, epistemology, and logic of identity, essence, and individuation, (iii) the nature of existence, and (iv) logical and metaphysical issues in classical Hindu and Buddhist thought.
I teach courses on a variety of topics. Lately I've been teaching courses on introductory and advanced formal logic, ancient Greek philosophy, philosophical issues in science fiction, and contemporary metaethics.
I earned a Ph.D. and a M.A. in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Notre Dame, and a B.A. in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Georgia.
I am also editor of the 'fundamentality' category for PhilPapers.
