I work in the philosophy of mind and psychology, specializing in research on emotions and on psychopathology.  I aim to bring philosophy, cognitive science, and psychiatry to bear on one another.

My main research program concerns the affective nature of clinical delusions.  I defend a model on which delusions are acceptances formed in response to powerful emotions.  A paper of mine on this topic was recently accepted for publication in Philosophy and Phenomenological Research.  Access is available here.

I received my doctoral degree in philosophy from Rutgers University in 2013, and since then I have conducted four years of postdoctoral research at the Swiss Center for the Affective Sciences in Geneva as a member of the Thumos Research Group on Emotions, Values, and Norms
