I'm a Postgraduate Research Associate and Lecturer in the Philosophy Department at Princeton University, where I received my PhD in January 2022. I am currently teaching Intro to Moral Philosophy, in which my students and I are surveying historical normative ethical theories and contemporary practical issues of social justice, with particular emphasis on feminist and Black philosophies.
I work primarily in ethics, political philosophy, and their history, where I investigate the good life and the social and political conditions that enable people to live good lives. If you want to know more, check out the other pages.
Outside of work, some recent flourishing-constituting interests include powerlifting, board games, dark and irreverent TV and films, sci-fi and fantasy novels, Marvel comics, and lots of time with loved ones. Other interests have included tango, Tai Chi, cooking, whiskey, piano, guitar, concerts, and video games.
