About me

Curriculum Vitae

Short bio

Born in the wilds of rural England, I moved to Oxford for university when I was 18, where I studied for a BA in Classics and a BPhil in Philosophy. I have now finished my PhD in New York at the CUNY Graduate Center, and am teaching courses at Baruch College.

When I’m not doing philosophy, I’m usually running, climbing, swimming, or some combination of the above. I’m also very interested in science fiction, animals, evolution, probability, game theory, language, psychology, neuroscience, politics, storytelling, law, geology, space, art, music, etymology, history, and Kerbal Space Program. I live in Manhattan with my wife Wanda and our toddler Luke.

In Fall 2015 I joined the Student Committee of the Association for the Scientific Study of Consciousness. I’m looking forward to our next meeting in Beijing!
