Paige Massey
Paige joined the Philosophy Ph.D. program in Fall 2019. She has a B.A. in Philosophy from Pepperdine University (2015), where she was a Great Books student and Diane and Guilford Glazer Institute Scholar.
Paige's research specialization is epistemology with secondary interests in ethics. Among other things, her current research includes developing an anti-skeptical account of epistemic circularity, defending the evidentialist project against the new pragmatists, holism in the theory of reasons, and, more generally, the ethics of belief, epistemic normativity, credentialism, and intersections between metaepistemology and metaethics. Paige is also interested in the effective altruism movement, genocide, and humanitarianism. 
In addition to her research, Paige is the department's chapter organizer for Minorities and Philosophy (MAP), an organization that supports underrepresented students to succeed in philosophy. She also coordinates the department's undergraduate philosophy mentorship program; students may contact Paige directly to request a graduate student or faculty mentor.
Before coming to Boulder, Paige participated in the Brenden Mann global leadership internship program and worked in non-profit organizations in Los Angeles and the Middle East. She also completed a year of national service with AmeriCorps VISTA. During this time, she was stationed at a refugee resettlement field office where she coordinated English classes, developed educational and employment resources and workshops, and created a system to monitor and evaluate program effectiveness. 
In her free time, Paige volunteers as an ESL tutor with Paper Airplanes, an e-learning nonprofit that mitigates the education gap for students affected by regional conflict. She also enjoys reading, playing tennis, watching detective shows, and making Spotify playlists.
