About Me

2013-06-20 14.11.54

I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the University of Massachusetts, Lowell and co-editor of Radical Philosophy Review. I received my B.A. from the University of California at San Diego (2002), my M.A. from San Francisco State University (2006), and my Ph.D. from the University of Oregon (2012). My areas of specialization are in Moral and Political Philosophy, Philosophy of Race, and Latin American Philosophy.  In general, my research is on global justice, especially issues that expose the tension between democratic autonomy (i.e., a peoples’ right to self-determination) and universal human rights. Recently, my attention has been focused on the issue of immigration with the aim of providing a philosophical defense of immigrant rights.  That said, I am always up for some good old fashion logic!
