Thanks to a $3.9 million grant from the Templeton Religion Trust, I am currently the philosophy director of The Beacon Project, which examines morally exceptional people from the perspectives of philosophy, theology, and psychology. In addition, I am a co-investigator on another Templeton grant whose goal is to develop a smartphone-based character assessment system for schools. I will be working with Edumetrics through 2016.
I am very honored to have been awarded the 2014 Kulynych Family Omicron Delta Kappa Award for Student Engagement, the 2009 Wake Forest University Reid-Doyle Prize for Excellence in Teaching, and the 2009 Wake Forest University Award for Excellence in Research. More details are available here.
