I am Professor of Philosophy at the University of California, Berkeley.
My B.A. (1994) is from Williams, my M.A. (1996) is from Oxford, and my Ph.D. (2003) is from Berkeley. Before returning to Berkeley as Assistant Professor in 2005, I was Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Harvard University and Research Associate at the Research School of Social Sciences of the Australian National University.
My main interests lie in moral and political philosophy.
The other goofballs in the picture are Colette and Eddie Kolodny. (The contest to identify the institutions of higher learning advertised by their t-shirts is now closed, and the disappointing prizes have been awarded, with predictable disappointment. Julianne Chung: Eddie = Texas Tech. Tom Sinclair: Colette = Nebraska.) My wife, Jessica Cross, is behind the camera.
I am sometimes electorally decisive.

Looking for a lawyer? You have the wrong Kolodny. For Israeli real estate. For Hollywood divorces.
