Research interests

Ethics, political philosophy, early modern philosophy, and philosophy of religion.

My current research focuses primarily on two questions. First, what role should attitudes and emotions play in normative assessment? Second, how important to our moral lives are the communities of which we are a part? (Click the link below for more about my current research.)

Career history

After earning a BA in philosophy from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor in 1992, I moved to South Hamilton, Massachusetts, to work on a Master of Divinity degree at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, which I completed in 1996. I then began an MA in philosophy at Boston College. After two years at BC I transferred to the University of California at Riverside, where I completed my MA (2000) and my PhD (2003).

Prior to my arrival at the University of Auckland in 2008, I taught philosophy at Santa Clara University in California and at Massey University in Palmerston North, New Zealand.
