My primary research is in epistemology, and specifically the relationship between formal and traditional epistemology. My dissertation is on the relationship between belief and credence. In it, I defend and explore implications of dualism about belief and credence. Dualism is the view that we have both beliefs and credences, and neither attitude is reducible to the other.  I am also interested in questions in philosophy of mind (e.g. the nature of belief) and philosophy of religion (e.g. faith, Pascal’s Wager).  My non-philosophical interests include sports (especially basketball), traveling, avocados, coffee, weight lifting, cooking, credit cards, and podcasts.
