I specialize in the philosophy of mind, psychology, and psychopathology, aiming to bring issues in psychiatry and in cognitive science to bear on one another.

I am currently on a postdoctoral fellowship at the Swiss Center for Affective Sciences in Geneva. I received my doctoral degree in philosophy from Rutgers University in October, 2013.

My main research program concerns the affective nature of clinical delusions. I defend a model on which delusions are acceptances formed in response to powerful emotions.
