I'm assistant professor of philosophy at Concordia University in Irvine. For the Fall '24, I'll be a visiting scholar at Princeton.

I'm writing a book on the meaning of life and the spiritual dimensions of engaging with nature (God, World & Value, Routledge).


My research is focused on four areas:


  • Emotions and their moral and epistemic value.

  • Human rights and their grounding.

  • The ways God's existence would or would not make our lives go better.

  • The moral status of AI and its uses

I earned my PhD from the University of Pittsburgh under Edouard Machery, John McDowell, Karl Schafer, Jim Woodward, and Crispin Wright. Before that, I earned my MA from NYU under David Velleman.
