Welcome to my faculty webpage. I’m a professor in the philosophy department at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, where I began teaching in 2003. I received my Ph.D. in philosophy in 2002 from the University of Washington in Seattle. My main areas of research are epistemology and virtue theory, especially virtue epistemology. My book on virtue epistemology, The Inquiring Mind: On Intellectual Virtues and Virtue Epistemology, was published in 2011 by Oxford University Press. I recently directed the Intellectual Virtues and Education Project, which involved the application of virtue epistemology to educational theory and practice. In connection with this project, I helped found the Intellectual Virtues Academy of Long Beach, a new charter middle school in Long Beach, CA, and edited Intellectual Virtues and Education: Essays in Applied Virtue Epistemology, published by Routledge in 2016.
