I am an experimental philosopher—that is, a philosopher who uses the tools of psychology and cognitive science to inform my philosophical work. My main areas of research include action theory, free will, moral psychology, neuroethics, criminal law, psychopathology, and punishment. During my career, I have published research with philosophers, psychologists, neuroscientists, medical doctors, legal scholars, a federal judge, a psychiatrist, and a theologian. I have also published work with undergraduates, graduate students, and post-docs. I not only thoroughly enjoy collaboration, I think it improves my philosophical work.
