I am an Assistant Professor in the Philosophy Department at Gonzaga University. I work in traditional and social epistemology, and philosophy of science, including work in applied epistemology in the practice of contemporary paleontology and evolutionary biology.
I earned my PhD in the Philosophy Department at Boston College. I also hold a BA in Philosophy from the School of Politics, Philosophy, and Public Affairs at Washington State University and am a proud graduate of the Running Start program at Wenatchee Valley College.
Before coming to Gonzaga, I was a visiting research scholar at Baylor University.
I'm currently researching and writing about abuse allegations, epistemic partiality, divine hiddenness, disagreement, and incommunicable evidence, in both professional and public philosophy.
My career has given me the opportunity to travel around the country and the world, and to spend my work time talking to students about questions that matter. When I'm not teaching my dog, Beowulf, the finer points of logic and paleontological research, I enjoy rooting for the Washington State Cougars and the Gonzaga Bulldogs in their many athletic and academic endeavors.
