Starting Fall 2016, I will be Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Notre Dame. Previously, I was Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Duke University.
I work mainly on the metaphysics of causation, and on topics at the intersection of causation and ethics. I also have interests in the metaphysics of time and time travel.
I have held the Philip L. Quinn Fellowship at the National Humanities Center, the Andrew W. Mellon Assistant Professorship, been a visitor at Arché at the University of St. Andrews, and am a frequent visitor at the Australian National University.
I am an associate editor of Analysis.
I serve in the American Philosophical Association in various capacities: presently as member of the Lectures, Publications, and Research committee (2016-2018), and previously as at-large member of the Board of Officers (2014-2016). I welcome ideas about how to improve the APA and the profession.
I received my Ph.D in 2010 from the University of Arizona.
My graduate career had other temporal parts located at UNC-Chapel Hill, MIT and Australian National University. I did my undergraduate work at the University of Chicago.
