Ph.D. - Fordham University
Area(s) of Expertise:
Coming out of graduate school the focus of my scholarship was Kant's moral philosophy. Over the past several years, however, I have developed an interest in the ethical naturalism of Philippa Foot (as articulated in her book Natural Goodness) and Foot's indebtedness to Elizabeth Anscombe (especially Anscombe's essay, "Modern Moral Philosophy"). I have also published on Catholic sexual ethics (particularly homosexuality and marriage), which remains an area of interest.
