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. During 2017–2019, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. As of the 2019 academic year, I am an assistant professor of philosophy at the School of Catholic Studies at Newman University.
My wife writes about theology, philosophy, and the life of faith here.
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.
