He works as a TA in the theology department at Notre Dame and he is a Sorin Fellow at the de Nicola Center for Ethics and Culture. Before attending Notre Dame, Nick received his B.A. in Philosophy and Political Science from Drew University where he defended his undergraduate thesis on bodily rights arguments for abortion. Upon graduation, Nick worked for the Thomistic Institute in Washington D.C. as part of the institute’s Junior Fellows Program. Nick has been published in the National Catholic Bioethics Quarterly. There, you can find his latest publication titled “Teleology and the Problem of Bodily-Rights Arguments.” In his free time, Nick enjoys reading books on philosophy and theology. He is particularly interested in ancient and medieval philosophy, especially in the thought of St. Thomas Aquinas. He hopes to use Aquinas’ work to help the modern world navigate through complex moral and ethical issues. Nick is excited to be an intern for the Equal Rights Institute and help forward the pro-life message.
