Hi, I'm Zach.
I am a PhD candidate in philosophy at The University of Texas at Austin. My areas of specialization are philosophy of mind and metaphysics. Right now, I am specifically interested in the notion of (metaphysical) ground, formulations of physicalism, the mind–body problem, and the parallels between debates in the philosophy of mind and metaethics. I've also become increasingly interested in aesthetics, the philosophy of film, and ethics from teaching on these subjects.
Before coming to UT Austin, I was an undergraduate at NYU, where I studied philosophy and film production and spent most of my time working on movies. You can learn more about my background in film by clicking here.
