Starting in the fall, I will be an assistant professor—with a presidential young professorship—in the philosophy department at the National University of Singapore. I received my Ph.D. from Rutgers, where I also earned an M.S. in mathematics.

My research focuses on uniting theories of different non-fundamental phenomena, such as explanation, grounding, identity, chance, credence, and contemporary quantum mechanics. Most of that research is in metaphysics, philosophy of science, and philosophy of physics. The rest is in feminist philosophy, formal epistemology, logic, philosophy of biology, and philosophy of mathematics.

Before coming to philosophy, I worked as a filmmaker in Chicago: I made documentaries about people, parks, and diners. These days, in addition to philosophy, I like taking pictures, watching movies, knitting, reading and writing poems, teaching outside of the academy, and hiking.
