I am currently Moreau Post-Doctoral Fellow in the McGowan Center for Ethics and Social Responsibility at King's College (PA). Prior to my appointment at King's, I earned my Ph.D. in philosophy at the University of Notre Dame, under the direction of Karl Ameriks.
My research focus has thus far been on the history of late 19th and early 20th century philosophy, with a special focus on the thought of Friedrich Nietzsche. I'm particularly interested in Nietzsche's views on the nature of value and the cultural significance of religion, and some of my recent work has focused on drawing out some of the religious themes in Nietzsche's work by placing them in conversation with more explicitly religious writers (e.g., Marilynne Robinson, William James, Max Scheler). For more information on my research, see the VITA and WRITING pages.
I've taught philosophy courses at the University of Notre Dame, the Westville Correctional Facility (as part of Holy Cross College's Westville Educational Initiative) and King's College. You can find syllabi for those courses under TEACHING.
