My current research includes:

Planetary aesthetics. This book project develops a new agenda for philosophical aesthetics in response to urgent environmental problems such as climate change and mass extinctions, supported through the conceptual frames of, for example, “future aesthetics” and “intergenerational aesthetics.”

Aesthetics of nature in eighteenth-century philosophy. This project is a series of articles; see one on Adam Smith’s aesthetic theory here and on Hutcheson and Reid on natural beauty, here.

John Muir and environmental philosophy. This ongoing project critically explores the interaction of aesthetic, spiritual, moral, and scientific ideas and values in his writings.
