As a philosopher, Catholic layman, and Dominican tertiary, my studies, teaching, and scholarship aim at continuing the philosophical tradition of St. Thomas Aquinas, Aristotle, and their heirs. I attempt to bring their insights into meaningful dialogue with modern theories. My central interests lie in the philosophy of nature and the philosophy of science.

My curriculum vitae.
I am a member of various academic societies, including the American Catholic Philosophical Association and the American Maritain Association. Due to my interest in the relationship between faith and reason, I am also a scholar associate of the Society of Catholic Scientists and an affiliate member of The Sacra Doctrina Project. I also edit The Charles De Koninck Project.
During 2017–2019, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile.
