I am assistant professor of philosophy at Loyola Marymount University (LMU), in Los Angeles. 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. Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about theological voluntarism and its relationship to ethics and the metaphysics of modality, with some help from John Duns Scotus.

My book is called John Duns Scotus on Parts, Wholes, and Hylomorphism. It was published in 2014 in Brill’s Investigating Medieval Philosophy series.  

I studied at UCLA (PhD), Oxford (MPhil) and Biola (BA). I have taught at LMU, UCLA, and Azusa Pacific University.
