My publications are all directly or indirectly related to some aspect of the nature of agency and action. Currently, my research is focused on issues related to the ontological foundations of action theory, working out the implications of an ontology of causal powers for how we think about human action and agency. I am also working on some papers in which I examine difficulties faced by traditional theism given some assumptions about divine powers and present and defend a naturalistic alternative conception of God that is best described as a variant of pantheism.
