I'm a Senior Lecturer of Philosophy at Tel Aviv University, where I started in the 2017 Fall semester. In the 2016-2017 academic year, I was an Assistant Professor at Bilkent University, where I started after finishing my PhD at Cornell University. Before that, I obtained a graduate degree in law from the Eötvös Lóránd University of Sciences.
I specialize in metaphysics and mind, but I also have substantial research interests in epistemology. I think a lot about meta-metaphysics, personal identity and the self, material objects, the epistemology of ontology, explanation, dependence, and the conceptual tools we need to do metaphysics and philosophy in general.
As a teacher, I am an enthusiastic generalist, with teaching interests spanning from the philosophy of language to early modern philosophy to applied ethics.
Outside philosophy I am interested in history and enjoy traveling to new places.
I'm not identical to the David Kovacs at Loyola Marymount University who specializes in Medieval Philosophy. I'm also distinct from the classicist at the University of Virginia who writes about Greek tragedy.
