I’m a PhD Candidate in Philosophy at the CUNY Graduate Center.
I manage the department’s websiteAcademic Commons (blog & event calendar), and Twitter feed. My research areas include philosophy of mind, philosophy of art / aesthetics, philosophy of science, and philosophy of education. My dissertation project investigates the proper place of educational science in philosophy teacher training.

I received my B.A. in Neuroscience & Behavior from Columbia University in 2012, after transferring from The Juilliard School, where I trained in Dance Performance.
