Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Colby College, working at the intersection of Philosophy of Mind, Neuroscience, Cognitive Science, and AI. Previously I was a postdoctoral fellow in computational neuroscience at UPenn, where I also completed a PhD in Philosophy. My research concerns the concepts and methodologies that philosophers and scientists use to understand cognitive capacities and artificial intelligence. I am especially interested in the cognition involved in complex and expressive movement, as in dance. I also received a JD from Yale, and am interested in legal and ethical questions about the integration of AI in society. I strive to empower my students to let their curiosity and passion drive them forward. 

Outside of my academic career I am a also parent, dancer, basketballer (knee permitting), reader, continual learner and erstwhile videogamer.
