I am a philosopher at Northwestern University.

I am interested in meaning, uncertainty, agency, modality, collective attitudes, the open future, explanation, chance, mathematics, decisions, rationality and more.

I can't write on everything in that list, so my projects have focused on the semantics of modals, and on issues in social epistemology.

I am currently writing a book on the way we think and talk about the future (as well as some new papers on normative and modal uncertainty).

I am presently an editor at Philosopher's Imprint
