Currently I'm a Lecturer in Philosophy in the Department of Humanities at Indiana University Kokomo. Additionally I'm Director of the Honors Program, Director of the Master of Arts in Liberal Studies program, and manage the Philosophy minor and act as faculty advisor for the Humanities B.A. degree.
My areas of specialization in philosophy include Eastern philosophy and religion, phenomenology, ethics and philosophy of human nature. I also have areas of competence in environmental ethics, contemporary continental philosophy, philosophy of religion and philosophy of technology. In addition to teaching in philosophy I also co-teach a Freshman Learning community each year that introduces first year students to the relationship between the sciences and humanities.
I have a wide range of interests in philosophy beyond my specializations and competencies including the scholarship of teaching and learning, aesthetics, philosophy of time, love and friendship, philosophy of human nature and philosophy of woman. Basically I consider myself a generalist in philosophy and will happily teach and research in nearly any area of philosophy.
