I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Concordia University in Montréal. I received my PhD from the University of Pittsburgh in 2016. Most of my research is in epistemology, logic, philosophy of mind, and moral psychology. I am particularly interested in reasoning.

I also have interests in philosophy of language and philosophy of action. A lot of what I work on has to do, in one way or another, with normativity and rationality.

Before I did my PhD in Pittsburgh, I received a Magister Artium in Philosophy and Diplom in Psychology from the University of Trier (Germany).
