Philosophy

I am a part-time professor of philosophy at South Georgia State College, where I teach Professional Ethics and Introduction to Philosophy, and Morehouse College, where I teach Introduction to Philosophy. I attended the University of Michigan for graduate school where I worked under Gordon Belot. I defended my dissertation, Prospects for a New Account of Time Reversal, in the spring of 2013. I work in a number of areas including Philosophy of Physics, Philosophy of Science, Metaphysics, Epistemology, Philosophy of Education, Philosophy of Religion, and Ethics. The picture is from a presentation I gave on the quantum sleeping beauty problem in 2009 at the University of Western Ontario LMP Conference (and is one of the few images I’ve ever made for a philosophy talk on my work). It remains a humbling testament to my lack of skill with Photoshop. Below are a few of my publications. If you don’t have institutional access to one of my papers without a “preprint” link and would like to read it, please get in touch with me (I do not use academia.edu).
