Melissa Fusco



I am an Assistant Professor in the Philosophy Department at Columbia University.  I work in philosophy of language and decision theory.  My dissertation was about disjunction under the scope of deontic modal operators.

I received my PhD in 2015 from UC Berkeley.

This fall, I’m pleased to be teaching Contemporary Civilizations, and Phil 1010: Methods and Problems.
