I am a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Toronto working with Jonathan Weisberg. I received my doctorate in philosophy at the University of Southern California in 2015, working with Kenny Easwaran, Ralph Wedgwood, Jacob Ross, and Richard Arratia (mathematics).
My principal research interests focus on questions at the intersection of epistemology, the foundations of uncertain inference, and cognitive science like:
Other research interests in the psychology of human reasoning, the philosophy of statistics, machine learning, philosophical logic, modality, and ethics broadly construed. I have also successfully completed the Society of Actuaries P exam in probability and will sit FM this August.
Before beginning my PhD at USC, I received an MA in Philosophy from the University of Manitoba on Bayesian measures of confirmation—the theory of what evidentially impacts what—under Rhonda Martens, Chris Tillman and Brad C. Johnson (statistics). Before that I completed an honors degree in Philosophy with undeclared majors in mathematics and statistics at the University of Manitoba.
