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. (Which institution of higher learning is Colette advertising? Guess correctly, and I will send you a disappointing prize. Julianne Chung, winner of the first diappointing prize, nailed Eddie's: Texas Tech, home of the Red Raiders and Chris Hom.) My wife, Jessica Cross, is behind the camera.

My hobbies.

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