Associate Professor
Director of Undergraduate Studies

104 Caldwell Hall

I received my PhD in philosophy from UC Berkeley in 2012. I joined the UNC philosophy department in 2017.

Please note my email policy: Monday-Thursday I usually respond to emails within a day (during semesters). I usually do not check my emails on Friday-Sunday, holidays, etc.

For information about my research, please visit here:

This academic year I am teaching the following courses: 17th/18th Century Western Philosophy (220H, Fall); Kant’s Practical Philosophy (424, Fall) and, with Matt Kotzen, a dissertation research seminar for PhD students (994 Spring).

My regular office hours in the Fall semester are: Tuesday, 9-10.30am; Thursday, 12.30-2pm. Students are welcome to stop by my office (104 Caldwell) during those hours without prior appointment.

As the department’s Director of Undergraduate Studies, I am happy to answer any questions about the department, course enrollment, majoring or minoring in philosophy, etc. To schedule an appointment for meeting (in-person or remotely) outside of office hours, or for any questions that can be answered via email, please contact me at
