I am an assistant professor of philosophy at the University at Buffalo, SUNY. My work so far has focused on early modern philosophy, and particularly on early modern views about mind and language.

I founded a group blog in Modern Philosophy, The Mod Squad, as well as the Society for Modern Philosophy. I also have my own individual philosophy blog, Horseless Telegraph.

I try keep my personal e-mail separate from my professional e-mail.
