photo 2I am an Assistant Professor in the Philosophy Department at Bowling Green State University. Before that I was a Research Assistant Professor in the Philosophy, Politics, and Economics program in the Department of Philosophy at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.  In 2014 I was also the Adam Smith Guest Professor in the Philosophy and Economics Program at the University of Bayreuth in Germany. I received my Ph.D. in philosophy in 2013 from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. My main research interests are in ethical theory, metaphysics, and environmental ethics. I am particularly interested in the metaphysics of harm and the relationships between well-being, impersonal and personal value, causation, moral standing, and time.
