I am an instructional associate professor at the University of Houston, where I lead the program of Liberal Studies. My interests lie in normativity, epistemology, and philosophy of mathematics. My papers appeared in Kantian Review, NAKS Series, and collections published by CUP and De Gruyter. I currently teach courses on theories of knowledge and normativity. In the last years, I was an academic visitor at the University of Oxford (Trinity term 2016, 2017), a lecturer of the Institute Vienna Circle (summer term 2015, 2017), and a visiting professor for the graduate programs of the University of Vienna (Spring 2019) and the University of Bergamo in Italy (Summer term 2015).
