“What I love most about philosophy is its breadth. We can ask philosophical questions about everything, from the trivial to the profound. Most of my work is organized around the nature and role of moral responsibility — what it takes to deserve blame and praise for the things we do. More recently I’ve turned to questions exploring our evaluative interactions with others, for example, the ways in which one’s moral criticism of another may itself ground criticism. These projects often integrate work from other fields, including psychology and law.”
