I am a PhD philosophy candidate at the University of California, Berkeley working under the supervision of Lara Buchak and Jay Wallace. I expect to receive my degree in May 2021.
Disagreement is a central topic of my research. In my dissertation, I argue that when faced with a moral peer disagreement, belief revision is required of you only in cases in which your higher-order reasons for taking your dissenter to be your peer are equally compelling to your first-order reasons for thinking your dissenter made a mistake.
I also do research in philosophy of religion. My research is historically informed by patristic and scholastic thought. Recently, I have been focusing on the classical attributes of God and God’s relationship with us.
When I am not doing philosophy, I enjoy spending time with my three young children and my wife. My family and I enjoy going on hikes. I’m proud to say that just recently my two boys finished an entire hike without needing to be carried.
