About Me I’m an assistant professor in the Department of Public Policy Leadership at the University of Mississippi. I earned my Ph.D. in philosophy at Florida State University in 2016. Before that, I received my MA in philosophy from the University of Florida. My research focuses broadly on ethics—particularly moral responsibility, blame, moral standing, and hypocrisy—and the ways in which it bears on our interpersonal relationships, public policy, and leadership. When I’m not working, I’m usually hanging out with my dog, Fennekin. I also enjoy traveling, playing piano, and consistently coming in third place in bar trivia.
