Professor Wyatt was born in Fort Worth, Texas. He earned his B.A. in 2008 from Texas Christian University, working under the supervision of Professor Blake Hestir. Directly after his undergraduate studies, he began working on his M.A. at the University of Connecticut, which he earned in 2011. He completed his Ph.D. at UCONN in 2014, producing a dissertation on the nature of truth supervised by Professor Michael P. Lynch. During the summer of 2013, Professor Wyatt also served as a Graduate Research Fellow at the University of Aberdeen's Northern Institute of Philosophy. He also visited UIC several times while working on his dissertation in order to participate in conferences and discuss issues pertaining to truth with Professor Nikolaj Pedersen. After earning his Ph.D., Professor Wyatt served from 2014-2016 as a postdoctoral researcher within Professor Pedersen's NRF-funded project Pluralisms.
