Recent Events

During AY 2013/14 I enjoyed the year off from teaching. I was honored to have been awarded the Samuel F. Conti Faculty Fellowship. I retired on June 1, 2014. I no longer teach any courses.

I completed a manuscript of A Desertist Theory of Justice. In this book I present criticism of other popular theories of distributive justice; I present and defend my own theory. It is (as the title suggests) a version of the idea that justice is done when people receive the benefits and burdens that they deserve. The manuscript is currently (May 24, 2015) under review.
