Rachel Goodman is an Associate Professor. She received her PhD from the University of Chicago and, before coming to UIC, was an Assistant Professor at the University of Nebraska, and the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee.

Rachel's research interests lie in the philosophy of mind and language, with a focus on the nature of representation. She's interested in questions about mental reference and so-called 'singular' (or de re) thought, along with connected issues in the philosophy of language. She's also interested in the notion of a mental file, in explanations of de jure coreference in language and thought, in different kinds of representational format, and in the format/content distinction.
