I am a postdoc in archaeology and philosophy at Florida International University in beautiful Miami, Florida. I recently received my PhD from the Graduate Center, City University of New York, where my dissertation was advised by Noel Carroll. My work is in the philosophy of language and aesthetics, with related interests in logic, philosophy of mind, and philosophy of biology. My dissertation was entitled “Meaning Through Things“.
For the 2016-2017 academic year I was awarded the American Society for Aesthetics Dissertation Fellowship and an Interdisciplinary Committee for Science Studies at the CUNY Graduate Center Dissertation Fellowship.
Prior to beginning my doctorate, I received my BA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and taught English at a lycée in the Académie de Versailles, France. Sometimes I paint and draw. You can see my work here. More images are coming soon.
