Kimberly Dill
Assistant Professor
Educational Background

Kimberly Dill acquired her Ph.D. from the University of Texas at Austin in May of 2019. Her research is centered at the intersection of environmental philosophy and ethics, the philosophy of psychology, and the philosophy of science. More specifically, she enjoys philosophically analyzing empirical work in environmental psychology, indigenous philosophy, dark night sky, forest, and biodiversity conservation. Her teaching is distinctly multi-cultural and comparative. She has a particular passion for introducing students to Daoist, Hindu, Buddhist, Indigenous, and Western empirical philosophical systems (in, e.g., the philosophy of biology and psychology). In this vein, she will be teaching Ethics & the Environment (PHIL 29), Cultural and Ideas I & II (PHIL 11A and 12A), and Indian Philosophy (PHIL 177) at Santa Clara University during the 2022/23 Academic Year. Outside of University halls, Kimberly can be found engaging in public philosophy by presenting talks and organizing debates in a variety of forums and festivals.
