Nihil philosophiae a me alienum puto: I'm interested in everything philosophy-related and in everything philosophy relates to. I'm also Director of Undergraduate Studies. So, if you'd like to schedule an appointment with me to talk about the major, the minor, philosophy in general, a philosophical problem in particular, or anything else, you can do so by visiting and booking a time slot.
