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. In my research, I explore issues in normative ethics and social philosophy—particularly moral responsibility, blame, punishment, moral standing, and hypocrisy—and the ways in which each of these bears on our interpersonal relationships, public policy, and leadership. When I’m not working, I’m usually with my dog, Fennekin. I also enjoy traveling, playing piano, and consistently coming in third place in bar trivia.
