About

I am an affiliated associate professor in the philosophy department at the CUNY Graduate Center and a research associate in the philosophy department at the University of Connecticut. I work primarily in epistemology, with overlapping interests in the philosophy of science and logic.

My work in theoretical epistemology encompasses the metaphysics of epistemic norms, a priori knowledge/justification, fallibilism, naturalistic epistemologies, and epistemic value.

In applied epistemology, I am interested in good epistemic practices for organizations and, in particular, the financial services industry. I have related interests in business ethics.

I am a long-time resident of New York City. Prior to and concurrent with my affiliation at the CUNY Graduate Center, I was regular faculty at City College of New York.  Before returning to NYC in 2012, I was regular faculty at Union College, where I taught a broad array of courses in analytic philosophy.

My PhD is from the CUNY Graduate Center. The title of my dissertation was “The Epistemological Status of Logic,” which I wrote under the direction of Hartry Field at NYU. My undergraduate degree is from Wellesley College.

Before embarking on my PhD, I worked as a corporate credit analyst and loan officer in major money center banks in New York City. My work in business ethics and applied epistemology is informed by my experience in the banking industry.
