Who I Am

I studied philosophy at the Catholic University of America, where I received a doctorate  in 2016. My undergraduate alma mater is Thomas Aquinas College. A Catholic layman and Dominican tertiary, I study St. Thomas Aquinas, Aristotle, and their heirs, taking particular care to bring their insights into critical and meaningful dialogue with modern theories.

I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at Pontificia Universidad Católica in Santiago, Chile.

My academic research interests include the following:

  • Philosophy of nature and the philosophy of science
  • Philosophy of cosmology; substance, form, and holism
  • Foundations of moral philosophy and natural law
