I am Henry Rutgers Term Chair and Associate Professor of Philosophy at Rutgers University.  I currently serve as the Director of Graduate Admissions and the Director of the Summer Institute for Diversity in Philosophy

I am also the Editor-in-Chief of Philosophy Compass, the leading journal publishing peer-reviewed survey articles that cover the most important research and current thinking from across the entire discipline.

I received my PhD from the NYU Philosophy Department in 2012, and I have a JD from NYU School of Law

My free, online, open-to-all Coursera course, Revolutionary Ideas: An Introduction to Legal and Political Philosophy, is now in On-Demand format.  That means that it can be taken for free, by anyone in the world, at any time.  

Part One of the course is available here.  

Part Two of the course is available here.  

This is the complete syllabus for the class.   

Here's a series of pieces on alternatives to democracy in the Newark Star-Ledger that I selected and helped edit, along with my own contribution, arguing for the use of lotteries, rather than elections, to select political officials.  

Here's an article in the Boston Globe about some of my work on the use of lotteries, rather than elections, to select political officials.

Here's a popular piece that I wrote for the long-form magazine Aeon in which I make the case for lottocracy.
