Current Research

At any given point I have several topics that I actively research. However, research progress can range from having an idea written on a page in a notebook, to an annotated bibliography, to an outline, to a working paper. While ideas abound, the work that it takes to take an idea to something resembling real research can at times be a herculean task. In the spirit of not deceiving myself or the world I limit myself to one or two active research projects that are typically tangentially related to one another during any given time period.

Information on topics, progress updates, and information requests will be answered by emailing
