I am a Collegiate Assistant Professor of Humanities and Harper Schmidt Fellow in the Society of Fellows at the University of Chicago. I am also affiliated faculty in the Department of Philosophy. I recently earned my PhD in Philosophy at the University of Pittsburgh, where I worked under the direction of Michael Thompson. Prior to that, I earned my B.A. in Philosophy and Medieval Studies (with Classics minor) at Indiana University-Bloomington.
My research lies at the intersection of ethics, philosophy of action, and theories of practical rationality. I also have research interests in the philosophy of religion, early modern ethics, and the philosophy of St. Thomas Aquinas generally. The philosophers who have most influenced my own work are Aristotle, Aquinas, and Elizabeth Anscombe.
