Living at the intersections of experience...


I am currently the editor-in-chief of the Journal of Philosophy of Emotion, the president of the Society for Philosophy of Emotion, and a part-time adjunct professor. I am currently on the job market for a full-time tenure-track research position, postdoc, or research grant. I have a BA, MA, and PhD in Philosophy, and an MA in Ethics and Policy Studies. My areas of specializations are the philosophy of emotion, philosophy of mind, epistemology, philosophy of science, and moral psychology. My PhD advisor was Dr. Cheshire Calhoun. Relying on both philosophical and psychological research on emotion, my dissertation provided a general framework for carrying out interdisciplinary studies, especially in the field of emotion. By doing so, it contributed to the project of the unification of knowledge across academia. My arguments focused on the question of what an adequate theory of emotion entails from an interdisciplinary perspective and the fruitfulness of interdisciplinary research on emotion to the areas of philosophy of mind, epistemology, philosophy of science, philosophy of language, and the discipline of psychology. I am currently working on completing my manuscript, Interdisciplinary Foundations for the Science of Emotion: Unification without Consilience, which is under contract with Lexington Books. You can also learn more about me by reading my interview with Shelley Tremaine in "Dialogues on Disability."
