I am Assistant Professor of Philosophy in the School of Humanities at the University of Southern Mississippi.

I work on value theory and history of philosophy (especially in the 19th century). My work in these areas interrelate and are animated by the search to understand the life well lived.

I am excited to be teaching on theories of the good life at USM. I have previously taught at Boston College, Boston University, Emerson College, Merrimack College, Suffolk University, Lesley University, and Georgia State University. My courses have ranged from history of ethics, philosophy of friendship, bioethics, and just war theory.
