Modules taught


I came to Exeter in autumn 2013.

Previously, I was a Research Fellow in the Department of Philosophy, Durham University, where I was part of an interdisciplinary project investigating auditory verbal hallucinations (Hearing the Voice). Before that, I was a Research Fellow at the Center for Subjectivity Research, University of Copenhagen. I did my Ph.D. in Philosophy at Purdue University, my M.A. in Philosophy at San Francisco State University, and my B.A. in English at the University of California, Davis. For a while I thought about being a poet until I realized I was terrible at it.

I grew up in Southern California, a bit north of San Diego. I still go back yearly to visit my parents, flail around on my long-neglected surfboard, and get horrendously sunburned. And also eat lots of fish tacos.
