I am a Hecht-Levi Fellow in the Berman Institute of Bioethics at Johns Hopkins University. In May, I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where I wrote a dissertation in philosophy under the direction of Susan Wolf. Before coming to North Carolina, I did my undergraduate work at Cornell University, where I wrote an honors thesis supervised by Derk Pereboom.
My primary philosophical interests are in normative ethics and moral psychology. My research is on the role of negative emotions (such as anger, sadness, and disappointment) in moral life, and how an understanding of these attitudes can contribute to a better theory of responsible agency.
I held a Mellon/ACLS Dissertation Completion Fellowship during the 2016-17 academic year.
I also enjoy spending time with my dog, Duncan, and playing pick-up basketball, which prompted me to work on this article with basketball analytics legend, Kirk Goldsberry.
