Welcome to my website. I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. My research centers on moral psychology and the history of political economy, especially in eighteenth century moral and political theory and in the moral, economic, and political thought of Adam Smith. My first book, Recognizing Resentment, argues that spectatorial resentment enables justice through the recognition of equal moral and political right. (Hear more about the book on The Political Theory Review and the New Books Network!)
I am currently at work on a series of new projects about Judith Shklar's skeptical liberalism.
