GRADUATE STUDENT, UNIVERSITY OF ROCHESTER, DEPARTMENT OF PHILOSOPHY
Me and my wife, Heidi (2013)
I am a graduate student in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Rochester. I have a B.A. in Philosophy and Visual Art from Bethel College (IN) and an M.A. in Philosophy from Western Michigan University. I’m primarily interested in Metaethics, Metaphysics, and Philosophy of Science—especially issues that lie at the intersection of these. I’ve focused much of my research around programs that attempt to square moral theories with empirical research and on evolutionary debunking arguments against moral realism. I have broader interests in supervenience, reduction, and grounding—as well as burgeoning interests in metametaphysics.
