I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Toronto. My dissertation (under the supervision of Tom Hurka, with Arthur Ripstein and Julia Nefsky) focuses on the role of national partiality in the ethics of war.
As of July 2018, I am Visiting Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the United States Military Academy at West Point.
Prior to coming to Toronto, I earned my B.A. (honors) in philosophy from the University of Missouri, followed by a year of teaching English to elementary school kids in Montpellier, France with the TAPIF program.
My research interests are primarily in normative ethics and political philosophy, but I also maintain interests in philosophy of law, bioethics, and aesthetics. In addition to my work on national partiality in war, I'm developing projects in and around bioethics and related issues in partiality.
Outside of philosophy, I enjoy podcasts, comedy, Kansas City sports teams, and, maybe most of all, traveling.
