I am currently Associate Professor and Don Shula Chair of Philosophy at John Carroll University in Cleveland, Ohio. My main interests are in the philosophy of psychology (particularly animal cognition and empirical moral psychology) and the philosophy of science (particularly Ockham's Razor/simplicity and scientific realism).

Right now, I'm particularly interested in the question of whether non-human primates are capable of thinking about the world in normative terms and the question of how normative capacities and concepts may have evolved.
