Before coming to Wayne College, I was a visiting Assistant Professor at the Philosophy Department at the University of Akron.

My research is in philosophy of mind and cognitive science. I am interested in the metaphysics of color, color perception, and how cognitive psychology and neuroscience can inform our philosophical theories of the relation between perception and cognition.

I have written about color fictionalism, intersubjective and intersubjective color variability, synesthesia, the individuation of the senses, and the relation between the ethics of care and economic theory. I am currently writing papers on perception and mental processing, fictional truth, and feminism. I am also working on a book on color.
