Welcome to my professional web site, where you can find information concerning my research and teaching

I am presently teaching at Rutgers University, having previously held visiting positions at Boston University and the The University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. Prior to that I was at the University of Pittsburgh doing my graduate work.

I specialize in ancient philosophy (especially Aristotle), epistemology (especially the relevance of theories of concepts to issues of justification), and ethics (especially topics pertaining to the objectivity of values, the moral status of productive work, and the relation between morality and self-interest).
