I am a philosopher at the University of Maryland, College Park.

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 just finished wiriting a book on the way we think and talk about the future.

I am presently an editor at Philosopher's Imprint
