I am a doctoral candidate at the University of Colorado, Boulder, where I am writing my dissertation on the philosophy of animal rights. Previously, I studied at Colorado State University (CSU), where I obtained my MA in philosophy. My research interests are first and foremost animal ethics, including how animal ethics intersects with animal theology, animal minds, and animal consciousness. I also pursue research in military ethics, bioethics, and environmental ethics. For a list of my peer-reviewed publications, click here.
