Justin is an associate professor of philosophy at MIT. Before coming to MIT, he did my graduate work in philosophy at Yale, and was an undergraduate at UC-Davis.
He works in philosophy of language and philosophical logic, on topics that lie at the intersection of philosophy and linguistics. He also has research interests in metaphysics, meta-ethics, and social and political philosophy. Those curious to learn more about his work may want to check out his interview with 3:AM magazine.
