I am an Assistant Professor in the Philosophy Department at the College at Brockport (SUNY). I received my PhD in Philosophy from Western University in 2007. Prior to that, I completed the MA Program in Philosophy at the University of Toronto (concurrently with the Collaborative Program in Bioethics). Before joining the philosophy department at SUNY Brockport, I was an Assistant Professor at the University of Wisconsin (Oshkosh).


My research focuses on Ancient Philosophy, Ethics, and Bioethics, and especially on topics at the intersections of these. I am currently working on the role of a technical concept of luck in Aristotle’s ethical texts, and on biological explanations of some of Aristotle’s central ethical concepts.


I am the advisor to the Brockport Philosophy Club, and the faculty founder and advisor for “The Mind’s Eye” (Brockport’s undergraduate philosophy journal). I am the Department University Senate Representative, and am available as Faculty Advisor for Philosophy Majors and Minors at SUNY Brockport.
