I'm assistant professor of philosophy at Concordia University in Irvine.


I work in ethics, emotion, and the philosophy of religion. Currently, I'm writing a book on the axiology of theism and the re-enchantment of the world (God, World & Value, Routledge).

My research is focused on three areas:


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

II. Human rights and their grounding.

III. Emotions and their epistemic value.

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.
