I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the School of Economics at the University of Queensland. My current position, supervised by John Quiggin and Laurie Paul, involves research on their ARC funded grant "Epistemically feasible choice: implications for sustainable risk management" to investigate the implications of transformative experience for decision theory.

While my philosophical interests are broad, my primary research projects largely surround issues in epistemology relating to rational belief change. I have an ongoing interest in philosophical methodology and a penchant for using formal tools to elucidate traditionally philosophical problems and concepts.

I have an Erdös number of 5. Outside of philosophy, I am an avid rock climber and a former member of the US National Badminton Team.
