Assistant Professor of Philosophy, Brooklyn College
Assistant Professor of Philosophy and Psychology, CUNY Graduate Center

I am a philosopher working on issues in moral and political philosophy and moral psychology.  At the most general level, my research examines the role that moral and political concepts play in our cognitive and social lives, and the extent to which they live up to what we expect of them.  I am currently writing a book on the role that these types of normative concepts play in solving practical problems, defending a multi-dimensional account of what makes them “fruitful” for this purpose.  The book is tentatively entitled The Fruitfulness of Normative Concepts and is under contract with Oxford University Press.
