Biography

I am an assistant professor of philosophy at The University of Akron, Wayne College. I received a B.A. in philosophy from UCLA and a M.A. and Ph.D. in philosophy from Syracuse University. My research is in metaphysics and philosophy of mind. I am interested in the nature and ontology of color, color perception, and how cognitive psychology and neuroscience can inform our philosophical theories of the relation between perception and cognition. I have written about color fictionalism, intersubjective and intersubjective color variability, individuation of the senses, and the relation between the ethics of care and economic theory. I am currently writing papers on perception and mental processing, fictional truth, and feminism. I am also working on a book on color.
