Bio

When not doing philosophy, I enjoy vegetating with the help of movies and TV shows.  When I'm feeling more active I like singing, playing the guitar and having a game of pool (or two).

Research

My primary research interest, at present, is non-eliminative mereological nihilism.  More broadly, I am interested in the various reconciliation strategies employed by metaphysicians when dealing with "folk" beliefs and utterances (particularly in the areas of mereology and ontology).
