I'm a lecturer of philosophy at Boston University, where I recently completed my PhD under the supervision of Daniel O. Dahlstrom, Walter Hopp, and Daniel Star. 

My research focuses on issues bridging value theory, philosophy of emotion, and the history of post-Kantian European thought. 


Broadly speaking, my research looks to rehabilitate historically-overlooked contributions to ethical theory from post-Kantian European figures and bring them to bear on issues in contemporary debate, with special attention to emotion-based theories of value from the early 20th Century phenomenonologists. I'm currently working on a set of papers that draw upon converging insights from early phenomenonology and recent cognitive science in order to advance a perceptualist form of value realism. I also have abiding interests in Kant and the Kantian legacy in the history of ethics. See more about my research.

In addition to my research and teaching in philosophy, I'm also a Writing Fellow in the Boston University Writing Program, where I design and teach interdisciplinary writing-intensive courses in philosophy. 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
