I am Associate Professor of Philosophy at Hamilton College. My research focuses on metaethics and moral psychology: the role of disgust in moral judgment; moral disagreement and objectivity; the relevance of empirical psychology to metaethics. I also work on food and philosophy.

I'm currently working on a book about awkwardness, under contract with Oxford University Press.

My first book, Thinking Through Food, is an introduction to the ethics, epistemology, metaphysics, and aesthetics of food. You can find more information here.
