Research Focus

My research is driven by a desire to understand whether and how (if at all) facts about the languages we use should impact what we believe about the world. In the philosophy of language, this motivates my research into the meanings and logics of conditionals. In history of analytic philosophy, this motivates my work on Quine's views about meaning and language and how those views shaped his views in the philosophy of science.
