My studies have led me to the pursuit of philosophy at the Catholic University of America, where I received a doctorate in philosophy in 2016. My undergraduate alma mater is Thomas Aquinas College. A Catholic layman and Dominican tertiary, I study philosophy following 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 UC, Santiago, Chile.
My academic research interests include the following:
- Philosophy of nature and the philosophy of science
- Philosophy of cosmology; substance, form, and wholism
- Foundations of moral philosophy and natural law
- Moral systems, incommensurable moral systems, bioethics
