I am an associate professor of philosophy and director of the graduate program. I have published articles on topics in phenomenology such as personhood, rationality, and phenomenological method. My current research interest is in theories of mind, reason, and world. While I have mainly written on Husserl and post-Husserlian phenomenology, I also have an interest in Kant and contemporary Kantian accounts of reason, moral psychology, and social epistemology. 

Before coming to Loyola I earned my PhD at the University of Leuven in Belgium, where I was a research fellow at the Husserl Archives. While in Leuven, I transcribed and edited a series of Husserl's lecture courses on the history of philosophy that was then published in the Husserliana Materialien series as Einleitung in die Philosophie 1916-1920.
