About Me

Hi! I'm Brian, a sixth-year philosophy PhD candidate at the University of Southern California. Before USC, I completed a Bachelors degree in philosophy at Reed College in Portland, Oregon.

I have broad interests in philosophy. My main areas of research are in the philosophy of language (esp. pragmatic and metasemantics), metaphysics (esp. ground and fundamentality), and ethics (esp. ethics of lying, deception, and communication). My dissertation is on deception.
