Welcome! I am currently a Visiting Assistant Professor at Providence College. I also hold part time teaching appointments at Northeastern and Rutgers University. I teach a variety of courses in ethics, social and political philosophy, the history of philosophy, and critical thinking. I have an active research program in many areas of ethics and applied ethics including: the nature of moral obligation; moral responsibility, the reactive attitudes; agency, punishment, enhancement, achievement, and virtue theory. I also have a long-standing research program in the free will debate where I focus on the moral ramifications of hard incompatibilism. The working title of the project is 'Free Will and Why it Matters'. I connect various moral concepts to different notions of free will in an effort to uncover which concepts rely on a notion of free will and what that notion amounts to. Roughly, I argue that we would lose quite a bit if it turned out that we do not have free will given the role the concept plays in understanding our relationships and our role within them.
