Religious Experience Residential Fellow
Before coming to Notre Dame, Andrew was a postdoctoral research fellow at the Center for Philosophy of Religion at Rutgers University. He has also held visiting professorship positions at Kansas State University and Dalhousie University, and he earned his Ph.D. in 2010 at the University of Missouri.
Andrew’s area of specialty is epistemology, and he has interests in philosophy of mind, metaethics, and philosophy of religion. He has recently published on memory, the internalism/externalism debate, and evolutionary debunking arguments. He is also working on a book on the relationship between knowledge and the doxastic attitudes (belief, doubt, confidence, and certainty). He has papers published or forthcoming in Mind, Synthese, Philosophy Compass, Episteme, and Pacific Philosophical Quarterly, among others. At Notre Dame, he will engage in research on the question of whether humans can gain knowledge of God on the basis of religious experience or the “sense of the divine”.
