I earned my Ph.D. from the University of Texas.  I earned my M.A. at King's College, London, in the U.K.  I did my undergraduate work at University of York, also in the UK.

I specialize in ethics, metaphysics, and philosophy of action.  I am also interested in philosophy of mind.  I have published on the topics of free will, moral responsibility, and applied ethics.
