Title of Project: 
Panqualityism as a Solution to the Mind-Body Problem
Advisor: Chris Tucker
Honors Department: Philosophy

I am studying the relationship between consciousness and the brain, which is known as the mind-body problem in philosophy.  Panqualityism, the view I am studying, is a new position that is seen as an alternative to traditional solutions to the problem.  This research is important because understanding the relationship between our minds and bodies is crucial to understanding human nature and behavior in general.

Hometown: Bethlehem, Connecticut

Fun Fact: I almost died in a serious ATV accident when I was in 7th grade.
