Contact details


I received a PhD from Columbia University in 2017. Before joining King’s in the spring of 2022, I was an assistant professor at the MCMP, LMU Munich.

Research interests and PhD supervision 

Decision Theory
Formal and Social Epistemology
Philosophy of the Social Sciences
Moral and Political Philosophy

I’m especially interested in the application of formal methods to issues in these areas of research. Recently, my work has also addressed topics at the intersection of these areas and the emerging field of global priorities research. I welcome inquiries from prospective research students seeking supervision on any area connected to my research.
