I'm an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Kansas State University in Manhattan, KS. My primary research areas are in moral theory, and I'm especially interested in:
  • what one is rationally obligated to do when one is morally uncertain,
  • how one's beliefs affect one's moral obligations, and
  • the nature of moral motivation.
Most of my work falls within the subdiscipline of metaethics. However, all of my work is directly related to applied moral problems—specifically, to how we frame, deliberate about, and debate those problems.
