Advisor: Michael McKenna

Hello! My primary research interests are issues at the intersection of action theory, ethics, metaphysics, and moral psychology. My dissertation, After Compatibilism: Essays on Freedom and Responsibility, offers a critique of contemporary compatibilist approaches to the problem of free will and determinism, as well as an alternative methodology for theorizing about freedom and moral responsibility. Please see my website for more information about my publications, ongoing research, and teaching expertise.
