Derick Hughes

I completed my PhD in philosophy at the University of Colorado Boulder; my degree will be conferred in May. I successfully defended my dissertation, Demystifying Modesty and Humility, under the supervision of Iskra Fileva, on January 19th.

My teaching and research are interdisciplinary, falling mostly in normative ethics and moral psychology. I mainly work on character: what it means to be a good person, what qualities are good, how we acquire such qualities, and so on.
