I do epistemology and philosophy of language, and I’m the graduate adviser for NIU’s terminal MA program in philosophy. My recent work is on contextualism in epistemology, norms of assertion, and skeptical arguments. I’m now thinking about testimonial injustice and epistemic degradation. I like talking about nearly any philosophical topic! I’ve done a number of Wi-Phi videos, a few of which are part of the knowledge series spearheaded by Jennifer Nagel, who did a fantastic AMA a while ago.

I’ll check back later on as well, so feel free to post more if you’re interested.
