I'm currently a PhD student in the philosophy department at Pitt. My interests are in mind, epistemology, metaethics, and empirically-oriented moral psychology.
I’m especially interested in the idea that emotional experience—say, the feeling of disgust—has evaluative representational content. I think this idea can help explain the role that affect plays in influencing evaluative belief and rationalizing behavior. I think it also has far-reaching implications in metaethics; say, in the epistemology of value.
