I have a number of research projects in the areas of ethics, epistemology, and their intersection, including a book project, in which I argue that epistemic virtue is integral to the development of moral character and a constitutive contributor to well-being.  

Here is a list of some of my recent publications.  (Some of them are available on my PhilPeople profile.)  If you have any feedback, or work of your own you think I'd be interested in, please reach out!
