Profile

I received my Undergraduate degree from Southern Methodist University in 2010, and completed my Ph.D. at Syracuse University in 2016, with a dissertation titled "Incompatibilist Alternative Possibilities.” My areas of interest in philosophy include the philosophy of agency, the philosophy of religion, ethical theory, and metaphysics.

I am a member of the American Philosophical Association, and the Society for Philosophy of Agency. My favorite philosopher is George Berkeley.
