I’m a PhD Candidate in Philosophy at the CUNY Graduate Center, and I teach full-time at Baruch College. I manage my graduate department’s websiteAcademic Commons (blog & event calendar), and Twitter feed. My research areas include philosophy of cognitive science, philosophy of art / aesthetics, and philosophy of education. My dissertation project examines metacognition as a pedagogical concept.

I finished my BA in Neuroscience & Behavior at Columbia University in 2012, after transferring from The Juilliard School, where I trained in Dance Performance.
I completed an en-route MPhil in Philosophy in 2017. See my CV for more details!
