I’m currently an associate professor of philosophy at the University of Victoria. My primary research interests are normative and applied ethics, but I also force myself to engage in metaethics when absolutely necessary. I continue to find issues in the philosophy of biology interesting, and I hope to find time to get back to this area of inquiry in the future. My main focus has been to defend consequentialism against objections grounded in expectations about what it is to exhibit a healthy moral psychology. There are many difficult issues for consequentialism to resolve if it is to provide a viable normative theory, but it actually holds a distinct advantage over other ethical theories when it comes to the ways in which agents have to balance competing levels of moral obligation in their daily lives. Or so I like to argue when I’m not distracted by things like horror films and people-seeds.
