Some Courses I'd Like to Teach
Any courses examining differences between normative theories, the differences between a naturalist and non-naturalist conception of those theories, and/or major Western figures in ethics (particularly Sidgwick, Moore, Ross, Parfit, and Bernard Williams).
Any courses examining how psychological facts ought to shape our understanding of concepts such as reason, desire, emotion, motivation, and judgement.
Courses exploring Africana philosophy as an emerging project that seeks to carefully explain longstanding and developing ideas associated with various historical or socio-political similarities among the African people.
Outreach and Other Stuff
I read to grade school children in Mexico City (2018)
I work to make the classroom accessible, particularly through well-typeset notes, slides, readings, and other visual aids.
I am interested in public philosophy, and have done outreach work for the Philosophy Outreach Program of Colorado for K-12 students.
Including all of my results as instructor of record, I outperform the University of Colorado on 83% of course questions. These results are publicly available.
I've completed the requirements for CU Boulder's Certificate in College Teaching.
