About me

biopicI received my PhD in Philosophy from the University of Chicago in August 2017. I am currently a Lecturer in the Liberal Arts at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

My research focuses on philosophy of religion, including issues surrounding religious language, the justification of religious belief, and the nature of God. My dissertation is a defense of the view that we can speak of God only analogically, and it proposes an account on which the things believers say about God serve to construct and then deploy analogical models of God.
