Profile Picture

Welcome!

Greetings. Welcome to my professional site. Here, you can access my most up-to-date CV, learn about the projects I am currently working on, see what courses I have taught and am currently teaching, or you can check out my posts page for various things I post on the web.

By training, I am a specialist in high- and late-medieval philosophy and theology. My present works focuses on the fourteenth century, but I am also interested in the impact of Scholasticism on the Renaissance, the Reformation, and early modern philosophy

I also have a growing interest in the digital humanities and the process of moving philosophical texts from their original manuscript form to media more accessible to the community of scholars. Please see my ongoing development of a web publishing framework for medieval Sentences commentaries at http://lombardpress.org and an example of this kind of publication at http://petrusplaoul.org.

I attended Wheaton College, Illinois as an undergraduate. I then went to Boston College for my graduate work. There I wrote my dissertation, Between Faith and Science: Gregory of Rimini on theological knowledge in his fourteenth-century context (2012). I am now an assistant professor in philosophy at Loyola University Maryland.
