I am Assistant Professor in the Department of Philosophy at Rice University. I am also affiliated with Rice's Medical Humanities Program.
From 2019-2022, I was Assistant Professor at Albany Medical College in the Department of Bioethics Education and Research. From 2017-2019, I was a Hecht-Levi Postdoctoral Fellow in the Berman Institute of Bioethics at Johns Hopkins University. In 2017, I completed a PhD in philosophy at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, where I wrote a dissertation under the direction of Susan Wolf. I did my undergraduate work at Cornell University, where I wrote an honors thesis supervised by Derk Pereboom.
My primary philosophical fields are normative ethics, moral psychology, and bioethics. I am interested in the ways in which social strength and weakness inform the way we feel and express moral emotions and shape our interpersonal relationships, including doctor-patient interactions.
