Hi. I am a PhD student in philosophy at the University of Colorado Boulder. I work mainly in ethics with specific interests in additivity, axiology, harm, rights, welfare, and normative theories. My dissertation is an attempt to solve a puzzle discovered by Derek Parfit known as the ‘Non-identity Problem.’ My solution appeals to and defends the existence of a moral reason to promote the good, but it avoids the classic pitfalls of Maximizing Consequentialism. I like other things in addition to philosophy. Some of these things are crossword puzzles, rock climbing, cycling, road tripping, silly card games, and new foods.
