I am Associate Professor of Philosophy & NEH Chair in the Humanities at Bucknell University.
From 2019–2021 I am also a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow at The Centre for Philosophical Psychology, University of Antwerp.
I do research in two main overlapping areas: (1) aesthetics & philosophy of art and (2) the philosophy of perception. I also have a substantial research interest in the epistemology of understanding.
My book on the philosophy of magic and other arts of impossibility is under contract with The MIT Press. To learn more about the book, which is tentatively titled The Art of the Impossible, read the MIT proposal here.
