I'm a Ph.D. student in philosophy at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I'm originally from Nashville, TN. I received a B.A. in philosophy from the University of Tennessee (2009) and an M.A. from Texas Tech (2012). I was in the Ph.D. program at the University of Wisconsin for three years (2012-2015) and then transferred to UNC (2015-2020).
I'm interested in ethics, epistemology, bioethics, PPE, and analytic philosophy of religion.
My dissertation, "Intellectual Courage in the Face of Intractable Normative Disagreement", is about what attitude we ought to take toward our own normative views (e.g., our views about ethics, politics, epistemology) given that there has never, and likely will never, be agreement about the correct answers--not even among those specially trained to conduct normative inquiry (i.e., philosophers). Here's a more detailed abstract.
