Research and Teaching Interests, or Professional Field

I research whether evolutionary history poses any problems for our moral knowledge. I enjoy teaching ethics-heavy classes and I look forward to teaching the newly-approved philosophy of biology course next Spring!


Experience as A Graduate Student at FSU

I really enjoy our department's social life and collegiality. Living in a house full of FSU philosophers has also been fun! I've learned so much from my peers.


Experience as A Member of The Fellows Society

Being surrounded by hard-working, ambitious peers always drives me to excel and do more.


Future Plans/Aspirations

Teaching really is my passion. I would love to teach philosophy!
