I am a Professor of Philosophy at Fordham University, specializing in epistemology, the philosophy of science, and ethics. I regularly teach classes in all of these areas, along with courses in the history of philosophy (especially Wittgenstein).
I am series editor for the Oxford University Press line Guides to the Good Life, and during the 2016-2017 academic year I will be a Visiting Fellow at Clare Halll, Cambridge University. In May of 2017 I delivered the Liu Boming Lecture Series at Nanjing University and the Simian Humanity Lecture at East China Normal University in Shanghai.
From 2013-2016 I led a $4.5 million dollar interdisciplinary project on the nature of understanding, supported by a generous grant from the John Templeton Foundation, with additional support from the Henry Luce Foundation. I have also received the Undergraduate Teaching Award for the Humanities at Fordham.
Finally, I am a proud former member of Jesuit Volunteer Corps, where I served as education director at St. John the Baptist Community Center in New Orleans, and am the current President of Philosophers in Jesuit Education.
