Areas of interest
I am currently (as of Fall 2016) an Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Postdoctoral Associate at Rutgers University, New Brunswick. I work primarily at the intersections of metaphysics and the philosophy of physics. My main interest is in the metaphysics of quantitative physical properties (like mass, charge, length, etc.), and, in Summer 2016, I defended a dissertation on this topic—specifically, on the connections between physical quantities, mereology, and dynamical laws of nature—for the philosophy department at NYU. I also have research interests in the ontology of space and time, laws of nature, and the foundations of quantum mechanics.
