I am currently an assistant professor of philosophy at Seton Hall University. I completed my PhD in Philosophy at Syracuse University. Before I came to Syracuse, I did my undergraduate work in Philosophy and Political Science at Arizona State University. I also completed a master’s in Political Science at ASU with a focus on Political Theory and American Politics.
My research interests are in ethics, death, and epistemology. I am interested in most philosophical questions related to death. However, most of my work in that area has focused on issues related to deprivationism. Deprivationism is the view that death is bad because, and to the extent that, it deprives individuals of goods they would have had were their actual death not to occur. Outside of the death literature, my work in ethics primarily focuses on the actualism/possibilism debate, global poverty, and animal welfare.
Much of my work can be found on my philpapers and my academia.edu pages. Feedback of any kind is most welcome.
