Welcome. I am a political theorist primarily interested in the nature of the free society broadly speaking.
My research focuses on two areas. First, I am interested in moral questions raised by the market. This includes more abstract questions about the relationship between the market and values such as community in addition to more practical questions about regulation (particularly in employment contexts). Second, I have an interest in the ethics of public shaming. This work focuses on how our best understanding of social norms should inform our approach to the moral questions surrounding public shaming.
Much like my research, I teach broadly within political theory. In addition to more traditional courses on the history of political thought, I have developed and taught more thematic courses on the morality of markets and moral progress.
I am currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of Georgia. Previously, I was a Junior Faculty Fellow at the Georgetown Institute of Markets and Ethics.
