Assistant Professor at Kent State University. Formerly Visiting Assistant Professor at Hamilton College. Dissertation: The Psychological Import of Syntactic Theory. Primary Committee: M. Devitt, S. Neale, J. D. Fodor. Readers: G. Ostertag, J. Greenwood. Defense: November, 2011. The dissertation argues for the psychological reality of syntactic representations (mental phrase markers), and a procedural conception of grammatical rules and principles. I'm also interested in issues concerning consciousness (esp. higher-order approaches) and traditional issues in the philosophy of mind, language, and science.
