Teaching Pragmatism


My research work is in value theory from a pragmatist perspective, and includes active projects in metaethics, applied ethics, and history of ethical theory.

My teaching work takes me everywhere value is found.  Recent stops on the tour have included epistemology, bioethics, ethics of mental health care, and normative ethics.

I completed my PhD in Philosophy at the University of Toronto in 2014.  Last year, I held a Postdoctoral Teaching Fellowship in the Philosophy Department at Fordham University, where I am now Visiting Assistant Professor.
