Cloos_0012cropint600I am a PhD candidate in philosophy at the University of California, Santa Barbara. My primary research interests are in ethics, epistemology, and free will and moral responsibility. Currently, I am working on my dissertation on the epistemic dimensions of moral responsibility. Visit my research page to see my publications and work in progress.

I enjoy teaching philosophy. I consider it an honor to help students understand philosophical concepts and theories, expand their capacity for critical thinking, and write with greater precision and clarity. See my teaching page for more on my teaching interests, and see my resources page for links to helpful resources concerning philosophy.
