Bio
I joined the community at AU in the fall of 2013. I am currently a Professorial Lecturer and have taught several courses that have focused on ethical theories and issues. I also help co-organize the DC Area High School Ethics Bowl that brings together students from the Washington Metropolitan Area to discuss ethics cases. I work in continental philosophy and the history of philosophy, with an emphasis on phenomenology and existentialism. My research interests include the philosophy of time, sleep and dreams, collective action, and the philosophy of education.
