I am an assistant professor of philosophy at Boston College. This site contains information about my writing and teaching, including some of my published essays, works-in-progress, and syllabi from courses that I’ve taught.
I typically teach a year-long course in ethics and social philosophy for the PULSE program at BC. This semester (autumn 2015), I am also teaching an upper-level course on moral knowledge.
Much of my writing aims to develop a neo-Aristotelian, “natural goodness” position in moral philosophy.
My work focuses on contemporary debates that have deep historical roots. I also enjoy working directly on historical texts, especially in ancient Greek philosophy. I have published a papers on Plato’s Sophist and Crito.
