I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Hampden-Sydney College. Before coming to Virginia, I spent one year as a Postdoctoral Fellow at TU Eindhoven in the Netherlands.

My research revolves around the following question: can empirical findings have implications for ethics? Accordingly, I look at what empirical research reveals about the development, physiology, and function of human moral belief and behavior, and then consider to what extent such findings can weigh in on ethical and metaethical discussions.
