Teaching in Spring 21: PHIL 6340 001
Brian joined the department in 2018. He has previously taught at Washington University in St. Louis, C.U. Boulder, and California State University Los Angeles. Brian's work is on epistemology, ethics, and the intersection of ethics and epistemology.
Current research: one current project is on how false beliefs, irrational beliefs, and incomplete information affect what we should do. Relatedly, he is also working on whether and why it matters that we rationally form beliefs, given that most truths are not worth knowing.
Brian's non-philosophical interests include drumming, video games, and cooking.
