I am a philosopher. My research spans the philosophy of action and rationality, metaphysics, philosophy of science, and human rights.

Since 2014, I have been Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Ave Maria University. I was appointed Visiting Research Scholar at Blackfriars Hall, University of Oxford, in 2017 and 2019, and am an Associate Member of the Aquinas Institute. In 2019, I was appointed the Barry Foundation Fellow at the University of Pennsylvania. I hold degrees from Princeton University, University of Texas at Austin, and University of St Andrews in the UK.
