My primary interests are in environmental philosophy, ethical theory, and political 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.

Last semester I worked with the Office of Service-Learning (OSL) on food distribution projects in Athens, as well as other OSL initiatives.  The food distribution initiative focused on providing a centralized calendar and bi-weekly digest of food distributions in the community to help address food insecurity.  This Spring 2022 semester I am teaching a philosophy service-learning course, PHIL 3900S: Philosophy for Children.  The community partner for this course is the local Athens-Clarke County Regional Library where my class and I are hosting an after school philosophy program called "Let's Talk About That!"
