I'm Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of Philosophy at the City University of New York, Baruch College, and Associate Professor of Philosophy at the CUNY Graduate Center.

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 teach classes in ethics, metaethics, moral psychology, Chinese philosophy, philosophy of religion, and experimental philosophy.

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