(May 20, 1990--July 27, 2005)

I am an adjunct professor of philosophy at Bentley College in Waltham, MA. I am currently teaching:

I also teach at Bridgewater State. My current courses include:

From September, 2003 to September, 2006, I was a post-doc in the philosophy department at the Technische Universiteit Eindhoven. My work is part of the Norms in Knowledge project. My work involved a conceptual analysis of artifactual function. The aim was to understand artifactual function by providing a suitable formal language and semantics for expressing functional claims. You can see an example of this work here and also in my papers, posters and slides pages.

From August, 2001 to August 2003, I was a post-doc in the Computer Science Department at the University of Nijmegen. My research was part of the "Modal Operators for Coalgebras" joint project with CWI.

My wife Ling Cheung Hughes works at an IP law firm. My son Quincy attends Milton Academy and writes for Slant, Milton's online news and opinion journal.

I received my PhD in Logic, Computation and Methodology from the Philosophy Department of Carnegie Mellon University in May, 2001. While at CMU, I was involved in the Logics of Types and Computation Group.

I received an MS in Logic and Computation at CMU in 1996. I received an MS in Mathematics from Oklahoma State University. I also received a BS in Computer Science, Math and Philosophy from OkState in 1990.
