I'm a Research Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the California Institute of Technology and Associate Editor at the Einstein Papers Project. My main interests are in the history and philosophy of physics and early analytic philosophy. I also have research interests in metaphysics, logic, and the philosophy of language. I received my PhD in Philosophy from the University of Pittsburgh in 2018, and before that I worked as a Science teacher at Capital City Academy in London through the Teach First scheme.
Details of recent and forthcoming papers can be found under "research" and some sample syllabi can be found under "teaching".
