After receiving his B.S.
in physics from the University of Notre Dame and an M.A. in philosophy from Columbia University, Chris began his doctoral studies in philosophy at Georgetown in August of 2020. He is interested in the relationship between facts and values, the (methodology for identifying) constituents of well-being, the viability of public reason as a means of political justification, the relationship between law and practical rationality, and the way that judges (should) reason in deciding hard cases. In addition to philosophy, Chris enjoys salsa dancing, surfing, and martial arts.
