About

I'm currently a Ph.D. candidate in philosophy at Florida State University.

My primary area of specialization is ethics and my interests include moral responsibility, experimental philosophy, evolutionary biology/psychology, objectivity debates, moral psychology/cognition, and philosophy of religion.

My doctoral research mainly focuses on evolutionary debunking arguments and I'm interested in intuitions, truth-tracking as a feature of cognition, the empirical evidence for and against moral nativism, and the extent to which debunking approaches can be successfully transposed to other areas of philosophy. My dissertation will look closely at the conditions under which debunking attempts are successful, i.e. whether constructivism is immune to debunking arguments, whether only reliabilist epistemologies are susceptible, whether nonnaturalism is more susceptible than naturalism, etc.

I also play the oud (look it up!) for Tallahassee's Middle Eastern Ensemble. And I love English Premier League football.
