I recently received my PhD from Rutgers University and am now the Oscar R. Ewing Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Philosophy at Indiana University, Bloomington.

I work primarily in metaethics, metaphysics, and epistemology, but my work also extends into normative ethics, moral psychology, and the philosophy of language. Right now I'm especially interested in the metaphysics of normative properties: whether normative properties are non-natural (and what that means), and whether an account of what metaphysically explains why something has some normative property should be unified across the practical and epistemic domains. See my research page for descriptions of my current projects. 



When I'm not thinking about the nature of normativity, I sing and play tenor sax and flute in a funky rock band, go outdooring with my dog, or attempt to cook tasty things.
