am an Assistant Professor in the Department
of Philosophy at St. Olaf College
in Northfield, Minnesota. My work focuses on
epistemological issues that arise in political,
social, and scientific contexts. I also have
research interests in American Pragmatism,
particularly the work of John Dewey.
I started at St. Olaf in the fall of 2010 after spending a year as a Post-Doctoral Fellow at Rutgers University in the Center for Cultural Analysis. I completed my Ph.D. in 2009 in the Columbia Department of Philosophy. My dissertation research focused on the role of scientific inquiry in democratic society.
On this website I have posted information about my research, samples of my music, and a current vitae [pdf].
