I am interested in moral philosophy, the philosophy of religion, Islam, Islamic history, and anti-Semitism.
Over the years I have taught Ethics, Introduction to Philosophy (Human Nature Seminar), Formal Logic, Critical Thinking, the Life of Muhammad, and the History of Modern Philosophy. I also teach in our first-year seminar (Conversatio).
