Academic Profile

Before coming to FDU, I taught as Lecturer at Brandeis University and served as Teaching Fellow at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government.

My publications include volumes in Symbolic Logic; an Internet Encyclopedia article on “the Sheffer Stroke;” critical commentaries on the philosophies of Epicurus, Plato, Nietzsche, and Wittgenstein; articles in Ethics, Biomedical Ethics, and Political Philosophy.

I have been teaching at FDU since 2002. I served as Department Chair for three years.
