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.
