Bio

My hobbies include playing bridge, triathlon training, and listening to The Do!! You!!! Breakfast Show w/ Charlie Bones (https://www.nts.live/shows/the-do-you-breakfast-show). My username on bridgebase.com is 'h4mburgl4r'.  

Research

I like using logical or mathematical thinking to learn about the metaphysical structure of the world and the social categories that we live by. Specific examples of this approach include a paper I have recently started on modality, properties, and ordinary objects, as well as an older paper in which I explore the relationship between gender categories and contradiction.
