About

I am an assistant professor in the Department of Philosophy at Union College. Before coming to Union, I was a PhD student at NYU, and before that I was an undergraduate at New College of Florida. For most of the 2015-2016 academic year, I will be a visiting scholar at NYU while on sabbatical from Union.

My work concerns the first-person perspective and its significance for a number of topics in epistemology and the philosophy of mind, including self-knowledge, epistemic akrasia, perception, memory, skepticism, the Cartesian Circle, and social epistemology.

Here is my CV.

Note: There is another philosopher named 'David Barnett', so please be careful Googling my name!
