Autobiographical Information
I graduated with my PhD in Philosophy from the University of Maryland in 2008, and then spent two enjoyable years there as a post-doctoral fellow. My advisor at that time was Dr. Paul Pietroski who is currently a professor at Rutgers University. In the fall of 2010, I took a position as a visiting assistant professor at Saint Mary's University. In 2011, I held the same position at the University of Rochester. Most recently, I was an assistant professor at SUNY Geneseo in the philosophy department beginning in the fall of 2014. I also taught in the women and gender studies program there. 
Philosophical Interests
By trade, I am a philosopher of language, specifically, a researcher on the semantics of proper names. But I have other philosophical interests too that include personal identity, free will, Kant's metaphysics, feminist theory, epistemic rationality, meta-ethics, and philosophical logic.
