I work primarily in moral philosophy (mainly normative ethics, but also some applied ethics), the history of moral philosophy (especially Kant, Mill, and twentieth-century metaethics), and early modern philosophy (especially Descartes). Most recently, I have been writing on lies and deception. I also write on film and popular culture.
