I am Associate Professor of Philosophy at Hamilton College. My research focuses on moral psychology, metaethics, and some issues in metaphilosophy and social epistemology. I also work on food and philosophy.  

My forthcoming book, Awkwardness: A Theory is now available for pre-order from Oxford University Press.

My first book, Thinking Through Food, is an introduction to the ethics, epistemology, metaphysics, and aesthetics of food.  You can find more information here.
