I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Relevance Project, working on law-based conceptions of relevance. Before joining the project I held postdoctoral positions at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México. I received my PhD from New York University in 2015 with a dissertation on noncausal explanation.
I work primarily in metaphysics and the philosophy of science, and I have further research interests in logic, the philosophy of physics and the philosophy of language. I have focused in particular on questions concerning modality, explanation, essence, ground and perspective.
