If you came looking for the dog (or the new kitten), you can find pictures of both here.
I am an assistant professor of philosophy at Claremont McKenna College. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The central theme of my work is that when it comes to what we should believe, morality is not voiceless. What we owe each other is not just a matter of what we do or what we say, but also what we believe.
You can read more about my work in this short Aeon article, "To avoid moral failure, don’t see people as Sherlock does".
I also have a short piece on why it's a problem that the internet never forgets at the aptly titled, "The Internet Never Forgets: How Google Shapes and Cements Our Identities".
