I am a philosophy graduate student at the University of Rochester.
After graduating from SUNY Geneseo and spending a year at the lovely University of Edinburgh, I spent a couple of years hanging out with these things and sometimes these, but mostly having a lot of fun teaching these delightful children, in Betroka, Madagascar.
Now I'm back, and I'm working in ethics and metaethics. I have primarily been interested in connections between ethics and the sciences. My dissertation work focuses on moral character and developing an empirically grounded virtue ethics. I like metaphysics and philosophy of science, too.

When I'm not doing philosophy, I spend a lot of time with this creature, occasionally wondering if she could get into a superposition, and gallivanting around town on my Specialized.
Sometimes, I ponder salad.
