Research Interests 

Philosophy of Technology, Social and Political Philosophy, Applied Ethics, Phenomenology and Hermeneutics


My main professional interests are in the philosophical questions that surround the development and use of technology, particularly in how technological systems embody and promote ideological frameworks. I'm currently working on a dissertation that, among other oddities, concerns itself with the ideological nature systems.

In addition to my interests in the philosophy of technology, I have strong secondary interests in psychoanalysis (esp. Lacan, Freud, and Zizek), cultural theory, and film criticism. In my spare time I like to cook, play the drums, and consume and interpret as much vulgar art and entertainment as I can.
