I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy in the department of Liberal Studies at Kettering University. I received my PhD from the Philosophy Department at Indiana University— Bloomington.
My research lies in Value Theory, where I explore different kinds of value discussed in Ethics, Environmental Philosophy, and Aesthetics.
In my dissertation, I argued that it can be reasonable to value certain objects, such as heirlooms and natural entities, for their own sakes even if they lack intrinsic value. I wrote the dissertation under Marcia Baron (chair), Sandra Shapshay, Allen Wood, and Sarah Bassett (Art History).
