My primary interests are in ethical theory and environmental philosophy. Recently, I've been focused on ethical issues surrounding emerging technologies that will have important implications for animals and environments, such as space travel, terraforming, and de-extinction. I also have an interest in the philosophy of smell, especially as smell relates to environmental aesthetics.
This Fall 2021 Semester I am working with the Office of Service-Learning (OSL) on food distribution projects in Athens, as well as other OSL initiatives. In the Spring 2022 semester I will be teaching a philosophy service-learning course, PHIL 3900S: Philosophy for Children.
