About & CV

I am a Killam Postdoctoral Fellow in Philosophy at the University of Alberta. My research specialties are history of analytic philosophy, philosophy of language, and philosophy of logic and mathematics. I have also published on Indian philosophy and metaphysics, and have teaching concentrations in ethics, philosophy of computer science, and practical reasoning.

In true Texan fashion, I started in philosophy while in a car, reading Plato’s Republic on a road trip to Houston in junior high. I later took symbolic logic as a college freshman and fell in love with the subject. One thing led to another, and in 2018, I got a PhD in Philosophy and an MS in Mathematics from the University of Iowa.
