Research Interests: My primary areas of research are analytic metaphysics and philosophy of religion. In metaphysics, I write about the nature of objects and their properties. On the property side, I am interested in the debate between those who take properties to be universals and those who take properties to be tropes. On the substance side, I am interested in the debate between bundle theories and substance-attribute theories. In philosophy of religion, I write about God’s relationship to creatures and their properties. I am particularly interested in the nature of creaturely properties and powers in a world sustained by God, creaturely uniqueness and the individuative power of divine love, the problem of evil, and the compatibility of freedom and impeccability.
