My philosophical interests lie in ethics (moral reasoning and the nature of moral thought), metaphilosophy (quietism and genealogy), pragmatism (classical and contemporary), and the history of analytic philosophy (Wittgenstein and conceptual analysis). I taught courses on the history of modern and contemporary philosophy, ethics, and issues in naturalism and normativity. I wrote a book on William James’s moral thought (Ethics and Philosophical Critique in William James, Palgrave Macmillan, 2015), and co-edited two volumes: one on contemporary ethics (Facts and Values: The Ethics and Metaphysics of Normativity, with G. Marchetti, Routledge, 2016) and one on the history of twentieth century philosophy (Pragmatism and the European Traditions: Encounters with Analytic Philosophy and Phenomenology Before the Great Divide, with M. Baghramian, Routledge, 2017). I also published articles and book chapters on James, Wittgenstein, Rorty, Brandom, naturalism, normativity, and various aspects of ethics.
