I’m a philosopher working on issues in the early modern period at the intersection of metaphysics, philosophy of mind, and moral and political philosophy such as human agency, free will, political liberty, and the emotions.

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 and am currently a visiting research associate at the University of California, Irvine.
