Hi, I’m Liz! I’m a philosopher. My primary research is in epistemology, much of it falling at the intersection between formal and traditional epistemology.
I will graduate in May 2019 with my Ph.D. from the Department of Philosophy at the University of Notre Dame. In November 2018, I defended my dissertation, written under the supervision of Robert Audi and Ted Warfield. Summer 2019 through Summer 2020, I will be a Research Fellow in the School of Philosophy at Australian National University. Fall 2020, I will join the Department of Philosophy at Ryerson University as an Assistant Professor. I completed my BA in philosophy at Kansas State University.
Recently, my research has focused on the relationship between belief and credence. I defend and explore implications of dualism about belief and credence. Dualism is the view that we have both beliefs and credences, and neither attitude is reducible to the other. My secondary reserach interests include philosophy of mind, specifically the nature of belief, and philosophy of religion, specifically Pascal’s Wager and the nature of faith. Additionally, I enjoy thinking about ethics and normativity, especially the boundary between the epistemic and prudential norms and how these relate to moral norms. I have further interest in decision theory and metaphysics.
My non-philosophical interests include sports (especially basketball), traveling, avocados, coffee, weight lifting, cooking, and podcasts.
