I'm an Associate Professor in the Department of Philosophy at the City University of New York, Graduate Center and Baruch College , where I teach classes in ethics, metaethics, moral psychology, Chinese philosophy, philosophy of religion, and experimental philosophy.

Most of my research is in moral psychology, broadly construed. I am a methodological pluralist, and use resources from other relevant disciplines to inform my work, such as evolutionary biology and experimental psychology. I also draw extensively from the history of Chinese philosophy, especially the classical period (ca. 6th to 2nd century BCE).

I am a co-chair of the Columbia Society for Comparative Philosophy.
