about me

I am a Professor of Philosophy at Providence College and Adjunct (Full) Professor of Philosophy at Cornell University. I have also taught at Harvard (in the College Writing Program) and the Auburn (NY) Correctional Facility. My research interests include the philosophy of punishment (esp. capital punishment and punishment and race), Kant’s practical philosophy, and Levinas. I have just published a book informatively titled Against Capital Punishment (Oxford University Press, 2019). I am co-editing (with Michael Cholbi, Brandon Hogan, and Alex Madva) The Movement for Black Lives: Philosophical Perspectives (Oxford University Press, under contract).

You can find me on PhilPapers and Academia.edu. Email me at bsy9 symbol cornell dot edu.
