About Me

I am an assistant professor in the philosophy department at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts. Previously, I was a Killam Memorial Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Alberta (2023-2024) and a visiting assistant professor at Denison University (2022-2023). I completed a Ph.D. in philosophy at the University of Massachusetts Amherst in 2022.


I specialize in metaphysics and the philosophy of religion, but I also have interests in ethics and Asian philosophy (especially classical Indian philosophy). 


My work in metaphysics focuses on material objects, especially their identity over time. I am currently finishing a monograph which defends the neglected view that material objects usually survive changes from one sort to another, and I have begun to apply my work on material objects to personal identity and personal ontology. 


In the philosophy of religion, I am especially interested in the problem of evil and in metaphysical questions about religious doctrines and ideas, such as divine providence, divine personhood, resurrection, and reincarnation. 


While many philosophers are cat lovers, I am instead a hippo enthusiast.
