I received my PhD from Rutgers University in October of 2016 and am currently 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 my publications and works in progress. 

 

 


When I'm not thinking about normativity, I sing and play tenor sax and flute in an "eclectic rock" band, go outdooring with my dog, and attempt to cook tasty vegan things (with moderate success).
