I am an Associate Professor of Philosophy in the Philosophy Department at California State University, San Bernardino. I research and write in the areas of 19th-century European philosophy (especially Friedrich Nietzsche), ethics (especially moral psychology), environmental philosophy, and social and political philosophy. For more on these interests, see this short member interview for the APA blog.
My work on Nietzsche focuses on his philosophical psychology and the problem of nihilism (especially affective nihilism) in his thought. For a short piece of public philosophy in which I discuss Nietzsche's understanding of nihilism, see this article I wrote for Psyche/Aeon.
My monograph, The Problem of Affective Nihilism in Nietzsche, was published with Palgrave Macmillan in 2020. Reviews of the book are out and/or forthcoming in the Journal of Nietzsche Studies, NDPR, and Human Studies. The blog of the LA Review of Books interviewed me about this project.
I have articles published or forthcoming in The European Journal of Philosophy, The Journal of Nietzsche Studies, Environmental Philosophy, and Philosophical Forum, and have contributed to several anthologies, including the Cambridge Critical Guide to Nietzsche's Thus Spoke Zarathustra. You can find a selection of my research here.
