I'm a philosopher at New York University. In Fall 2014 I'm a Visiting Associate Professor in New York, and from Spring 2015 will be an Associate Professor in Shanghai. Previously I was an Assistant Professor in the Department of Philosophy at The University of Rochester. Earlier still, I wrote a PhD under the direction of Huw Price at the Centre for Time, Department of Philosophy, University of Sydney.
