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 am currently on a postdoctoral fellowship at the Swiss Center for the Affective Sciences in Geneva as a member of the Thumos Research Group on Emotions, Values, and Norms. I received my doctoral degree in philosophy from Rutgers University in 2013.
