About me

My research interests lie in the philosophy of time, the philosophy of mind, and the history of modern philosophy. Before joining UCR as an Assistant Professor of Philosophy, I obtained a DPhil (PhD) in Philosophy from the University of Oxford. During my studies for the DPhil, I spent time researching at the École normale supérieure in Paris as a visiting doctoral researcher. I graduated with an M.A. in Philosophy from Tel Aviv University, and a B.A. in Philosophy and History from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

In my teaching, I aim to allow students to approach the fascinating questions of philosophy in a spirit of lively critical inquiry, and to develop an informed, independent perspective. I have had the opportunity to teach philosophy throughout my studies in Tel Aviv, Oxford, and Paris. At UCR, I teach introductory-level as well as intermediate and advanced-level courses in the history of philosophy, the philosophy of mind, metaphysics, and ethics.
