I'm assistant professor of philosophy at Concordia University in Irvine. I'm also a research fellow at LCC International University, and faculty fellow at Hildegard College.
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.
