I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Fordham University. I specialize in metaphysics and philosophy of religion. My research focuses on the relationship between time and agency, and I am particularly interested in puzzles related to:
(1) Temporal and spatial ontology: What must the world be like if we're to perform certain actions -- particularly free ones?
(2) Intrinsic and essential properties: What must we be like, if we're free?
I am also interested in the epistemic consequences of our metaphysical views, particularly:
(3) What agents (human and divine) can and cannot know, given what the world is like.
I received my PhD from the University of Notre Dame, under the direction of Michael Rea. Before that, I received my MA from NIU. And before that, I received my BA at Westmont College.
