Paul Chiariello is currently studying for his PhD in Philosophy at Yale University. He is also the assistant coordinator and webmaster at the Humanist Chaplaincy at Rutgers University. At the University of Oxford he completed his MSc degree in Comparative Education studying religion and the inclusivity of identity of teachers in post-conflict Bosnia.
Growing up in a proudly fundamentalist household, Paul originally entered college with the hopes of pursuing a professional career in Christian apologetics. After completing degrees in Anthropology and Honors in Philosophy, his faith slowly faded. Eventually, and fortunately, he found alternative sources of community and meaning in the Humanist movement. Combining his passions and experiences in both Philosophy and the Social Sciences he now hopes to lend what he can in building a strong Humanist movement.
