I am a Ph.D. candidate at Baylor University and a fellow of the SCP’s Fellowship for Science Cross-training.

I recently defended my dissertation and will graduate in Spring 2018. I wrote on animalism, the view that human persons are animals.  My cross-training project centers on the influence biology should have on not only animalism but also our accounts of personal identity more generally.

In addition to metaphysics and philosophy of biology, my main areas of research include philosophy of religion, epistemology, and bioethics.  I recently received Baylor’s Clinical Fellowship in Medical Ethics, through which I’ve worked with physicians in a variety of clinical contexts, and I currently teach medical ethics at Baylor.
