I study how early modern philosophers understand free will, the emotions, human agency, and the impediments to its exercise.

I received a BS in biology from Yale, an MA in philosophy from Tufts, and then a PhD from the University of Michigan. I taught at Colgate University after that, was a visiting research associate at the UC Irvine, and am currently teaching at Cal State Long Beach.
