Welcome to my homepage!


I teach philosophy at the University of TennesseeMy PhD is from the University of Texas.  Prior to this, I studied at King's College London and the University of York.  

I specialize in ethics, metaphysics, and philosophy of action.  My main research focuses on free will and moral responsibility, and related issues in action, causation, and explanation.  My secondary research extends into applied ethics and broader questions about the relationship between mind, action, and the world.  I enjoy introducing philosophy to beginning students as well as helping more advanced students develop their own views.
