I am from California, and received my BA in philosophy from the California Polytechnic State University at San Luis Obispo. After graduating I moved to Germany to be with my wife, who is a native German citizen, and was still finishing school at the time. Since being here I have received an MA in Philosophy & Economics from the University of Bayreuth, and am currently working on my PhD in philosophy at the University of Bayreuth. My supervisor is Prof. Dr. Gottschalk-Mazouz, and my research is on Just War Theory, focusing on developing and and defending an account which can be operationalized and employed in actual real-world conflicts. I also work in related topics in political theory and deontic logic, and have published work with the journal Kriterion.

Areas of Specialization: Just War Theory, Political Philosophy, Applied Ethics

Areas of Competence: Deontic Logic, Normative Ethics

My current research program focuses on establishing and defending a purely consequentialist version of just war theory, and doing so in such a way that the theory can be easily operationalized for use in real-world situations, or embodiement in autonomous weapons systems. These joint aims lead the project to being both highly applied as well as concerned with fundamental questions of normative ethics and political philosophy. In addition, the emphasis on operationalizing the theory draws in influences from deontic logic, as these are relevant for the implementation of moral rules in decision-making machines or structures.
