I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario. I received my Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of California, Riverside in 2016.
My research centers on the nature of language and other social phenomena. In my recent work, I focus on the semantics/pragmatics distinction, foundational theories of meaning, theories of reference, and the nature of social conventions. My broader research interests also include the metaphysics of social institutions, semantic minimalism, metaphor, and speech act theory.
