this one is not me
I teach philosophy at Pomona College, a small liberal arts college in Claremont, California with very talented students. Claremont has the good fortune of being located located both near the mountains and the Pacific (see »»).
I grew up in Philadelphia, and I am still a pretty diehard Eagles fan. I went to Penn, studied computer science, and enjoyed working as a programmer for a while. Eventually I found my way to philosophy. I got a Masters at Stanford and liked philosophy enough to finish a Ph.D. at New York University.
My philosophy research focuses on thought experiments, which has led me to explore imagination and its connection to modality, as well as skeptical challenges in traditional epistemology.
