I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Stanford University with wide-ranging philosophical interests. My CV is here. My e-mail address is email@example.com.
My first book (SHADOWS of SYNTAX) develops a combined conventionalist theory of logic and mathematics on the basis of an inferentialist theory of meaning, including a conventionalist-friendly metaontology and a naturalistic treatment of mathematical determinacy. The book will be released in early 2020.

Papers are listed chronologically in order of acceptance. All except (15) were blindly reviewed. Though blindly reviewed, (12) was submitted to a special issue. All other papers were unsolicited, open submissions, blindly reviewed.
(15) is a short but fairly comprehensive introduction to quantifier variance and its applications. It might be useful to those teaching classes on metaontology and metaphysics, so I have linked to a penultimate draft above. Please cite from the published version.
I have ceteris paribus policies against accepting invitations to contribute to volumes (not that I get asked, but still), submitting to paper prizes and competitions, and writing book reviews. In this my publication policies agree with those of David Lewis. When properly implemented, blind peer review of open submissions screens off some types of corruption. But I do realize that proper implementation is becoming rare, and that many people are making a career out of gaming the system in various ways. So it goes. I still think it's worth attempting to go up the hard way.
