Professional Summary

My work is at the intersection of Ethics and Cognitive Science. I work on applications of ecological psychology methodology to issues in moral psychology. My dissertation argues for a theory of moral affordances to explain agent-patient caregiving relationships. I am also a Master's student in the Department of Psychology here at the University of Cincinnati. 

My other research is interested in moral psychology, political psychology and philosphy, and transcendental phenomenology.
