I’m a philosopher working on human agency, free will, political liberty, and the emotions in the early modern period.

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 University of California, Irvine, and am currently teaching at Cal State Long Beach.
