About

I'm a lecturer of philosophy at Boston University, where I recently completed my PhD. 

My research focuses on issues bridging ethical theory, philosophy of mind and emotion, and the history of post-Kantian European thought.  My recent work draws upon converging insights from early phenomenology and recent cognitive science in order to advance a perceptualist form of value realism. See more about my research.

In addition to my research and teaching in philosophy, I'm also a Fellow in the Boston University Writing Program, where I design and teach interdisciplinary writing-intensive courses in social and political issues. I have a background in educational theory and instructional design, and I have special interests in the applications of philosophical method to writing pedagogy. See more about my teaching
