I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Duke University. I specialize in metaphysics and philosophy of language.
My current research concerns the nature of the social world. I focus on two broad questions. How are social kinds (like gender and race) constructed by us? And how do our linguistic practices (like assertions about racial identity) shape social reality?
I received my PhD in Philosophy from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2017. I received my BA in Philosophy from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2012.
