an Associate Professor with a joint appointment in the Department of Philosophy and in Environmental Studies at Colgate University. My research focuses on issues in ethics (both normative and metaethics), environmental ethics, and epistemology, with an emphasis on virtue-based approaches to each.I'm currently teaching a section of Environmental Ethics (ENST/PHIL202), and two sections of Introduction to Philosophical Problems (PHIL101). From July 2015 I will be serving as the director of the Lampert Institute for Civic and Global Affairs.
