Much of my research is on the topic of practical intelligence, the specific form of intelligence that rational creatures exercise qua agents. The questions that arise in connection to this topic lie at the intersection of philosophy of mind and action, epistemology, and moral psychology. I have additional interests in these areas, as well as working projects in ethics, philosophy of emotion, metaphysics, and ancient philosophy.
