I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Siena Heights University in Adrian, Michigan.
I work primarily in social, political, and moral philosophy, with an emphasis on the intersection of ethical and political theories. Currently, my research focuses on the nature and conditions of a state’s right of self-defense.
Before coming to Siena Heights University, I earned a Ph.D. in Philosophy from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, an M.A. in Philosophy from the University of Colorado at Boulder, and a B.A. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where I double-majored in English and Philosophy.
