Personal Biography

As a researcher, I currently spend most of my time thinking about moral evaluation in imaginative contexts such as artworks, jokes, video games, and pornography. I am currently working on a new project that focuses on the allocation of public funds for art in public places.

As an educator, I teach classes in ethical theory and metaethics, applied ethics, philosophy of art and aesthetics, philosophy of human rights, and symbolic logic.
