Education: I completed a B.A. degree in Philosophy with Highest Honors and a B.S. degree in Cognitive Science with honors at the University of California, Santa Cruz (Go Banana Slugs!). I am currently working on completing a Masters's in Philosophy and a Graduate Certificate in Cognitive Science. I am an active member of The Institute of Cognitive Science here at CU Boulder.
Philosophical & Research Interests: Lots of my philosophical interests overlap between the fields of Philosophy, Cognitive Science & Neuroscience. I am deeply passionate about moral psychology, moral responsibility & metaethics. My current research focus is on the nature of transformative experiences & character change. My work is heavily inspired by Patricia Churchill, L.A. Paul, Thomas Nagel & John Doris.
Fun Facts about Me: I am a practicing virtue ethicist. I seek out good books & good views like a bee seeks out the best flowers. My favorite philosophical books are The Nicomachean Ethics (Aristotle), The Myth of Sisyphus (Albert Camus) & The Will to Change: Men, Masculinity, & Love (Bell Hooks).
