My research interests are focused on the intersection of normative ethics, moral psychology and political philosophy. My current research is about the nature and psychological status of the virtues and the role of character in explanations of behavior in organizations.

Within this field, my topics of research include human rights obligations, corporate campaign contributions, transnational corruption, and corporate and civilian responsibilities in wartime.
