I am assistant professor of philosophy at Loyola Marymount University (LMU), in Los Angeles, where I am also Director of the MA Program in Philosophy. I am interested in nearly every area of philosophy, but I most enjoy thinking about metaphysics, philosophical theology, and their history, especially in the late Middle Ages. My main projects at the moment focus on Duns Scotus' modal metaphysics and ethics. My 2014 book, John Duns Scotus on Parts, Wholes, and Hylomorphism, has sold literally scores of copies. I studied at UCLA (PhD), Oxford (MPhil) and Biola (BA). I have taught at LMU, UCLA, and Azusa Pacific University.
