I am a Research Fellow in the IRCI Philosophy Program at Australian Catholic University in Melbourne. My primary research interests are in ethical theory and the history of ethics. I completed my PhD in Philosophy at Washington University in St. Louis in 2015. My dissertation titled Bound to Aim at Good Generally: A Sidgwickian Argument for Rational Impartialism was directed by Julia Driver.
From 2015-2016 I was a VolkswagenStiftung Postdoctoral Fellow in the Institut für Philosophie at Universität Stuttgart. During this fellowship year I completed research projects on Kant's practical philosophy as well as general ethical theory under the supervision of Tim Henning. My time in Germany culminated with the organizing of an international workshop on Sidgwick and Kant titled 'The Cosmos of Duty Above and the Moral Law Within'. I am currently editing a collection of essays on this topic (under contract with Routledge) with contributions from leading scholars such as Paul Guyer, Roger Crisp, Anne Margaret Baxley, and Rob Shaver.
I am originally from Scottsdale, Arizona, and I began my undergraduate education at Scottsdale Community College. After completing my Associate's degree at SCC, I accepted a football scholarship from Truman State University in Kirksville, MO. Prior to enrolling in the PhD program at Wash U, I earned an MA in philosophy at the University of Missouri-St. Louis.
