Hi, I'm Matt Hernandez.
I am currently working on my PhD at UNC Chapel Hill,
writing my dissertation under the direction of Susan Wolf.
I will be joining the philosophy department at UC Irvine in July 2021 as a UC President's Post-doctoral Fellow.
While at UNC, I have been an E. Maynard Adams Fellow for the Public Humanities.
I did my undergraduate work at Portland State University, where I was also a Ronald E. McNair Scholar and a University Studies Peer Mentor.
I was born in Santa Maria, CA and was raised both there and in the suburbs of Portland, OR. My family is largely of Mexican-American and Filipino descent.
When I'm not being a philosopher, I play roller and ice hockey and am active in the Durham Queer Sports scene.
I use they/them/theirs pronouns.
In another life, I played bass in a ska band.
