I’m Ricky, a PhD candidate in philosophy at Indiana University.

I study moral progress in the context of AI and Bioethics, and my dissertation is on well-being and assholes. Lately Ive been thinking a lot about ​what makes some ways of expressing moral conflicts more illuminating or insightful than others.

I also have interests in social and political philosophy, public philosophy, aesthetics, and philosophy of games and sports.

In my free time, I love science fiction, board games, jazz, art, screenwriting, and playing, watching, and coaching basketball.

I created The SlamBall Card Game. Let’s play sometime!
